A big birthday tomorrow for a very special Lake Region State College Employee.

Pete Kraft is celebrating his 80th birthday.

He is one of the oldest employees at the college.

Pete works primarily in the auto technology tool room at the school, but is called upon by the nursing program as well as the police academy.

He retired in 1991, but after his wife passed away, Pete said he had too much time on his hands.

The program at Lake Region State College allows him to work 9 months out of the year and still spend time with his family.

Pete says he's been blessed with an amazing family and great health and he needs to share that.

Pete told his family he didn't want a party, but they say they still plan on doing a little something for him.
