Retirement

Cathy Hopkins retires from Blackhawk Technical College after 21 years of instruction. She began in January 2000 as a Workplace Education Instructor at General Motors. In 2008, she transitioned to the role of Adult Basic Education Instructor at the Monroe Campus and six years later was teaching Basic Skills in Beloit. Through her years, Cathy has provided treasured encouragement to her students, pushing them to succeed when they wanted to give up.

“You are one of the voices that stayed with me when I felt like giving up…I personally wanted to tell you how much I appreciate you and thank you for pushing me… You helped me these last few years and made a huge impact in my life.” ~ Former GED student and 2021 graduate of BTC’s Criminal Justice program

We wish Cathy all the best in her retirement. She will be missed!
