Don Charleston named Moraine Park’s 2018 Distinguished Alumnus

Don Charleston is the epitome of a Moraine Park success story. He came to the College in 1973 looking for more career opportunities and a better life. At the time, his family was living on his wife’s $4 per hour nursing wage. After earning his degree in mechanical drafting, he went on to have a successful 34-year career in the earthmoving industry. His career and success took him around the world, but he has never forgotten where he came from and that is evident through his generous donations of time, talent, and treasures.
