Pat Wongkit has helped raise a community through her work in Madison’s north side
I have worked at Northport and Packer Community Learning Centers since they were established in 1995 — and I’ve lived in the Packer Townhouses since 1985. Our business model is designed around the idea that all staff live on-site.
I’ve raised three children in the neighborhood that I serve and, in many ways, I have grown up in this community, too. It has been a wonderful experience and also a great challenge. I love living and working here. It has helped me grow into the woman I am today because I know the importance and power of community neighborhood centers.
