International Student Dinner

Last week the international students joined my family and I for dinner at our home. The dinner was very nice and we enjoyed visiting with the students. The best part though was ping pong afterward! The students are very good and fierce competitors. 

When my son told some of his friends about it, they asked him if he could understand what the students were saying. He told them, "No, not really, but I could tell they were swearing in their language." 

Our international students are delightful in any language! 

The Multicultural Showcase is a nice opportunity to learn more about our students and their countries. This year the Showcase will be held April 13 from 1-3:30 p.m. in the Student Center. I hope to see you there.

Montana Rodeo Hall of Fame

On Saturday, I had the great pleasure of attending the Montana Rodeo Hall of Fame Induction where our Rodeo Team was inducted. We were all very proud!

It was a fun evening. In addition to the excitement of this prestigious recognition, I ran into my childhood 4-H adviser, classmates from high school, and neighbors from when we lived in Miles City.

Go Trappers!

My family and I hosted the men's and women's basketball teams for dinner at my home last night. They play Williston State on Saturday. The women's game starts at 1:00; men's at 3:00. If you have not yet had a chance to see them play, this will be a good one.

Education Attainment Council Listening Session

Last Thursday we held one of nine statewide listening sessions on how to meet the state's post-secondary attainment goals at Northwest College.

Our listening session was the sight of the state's Facebook Live session. The Facebook Live archive is linked below. I was very pleased with the turn-out and the quality of the conversation.
