Spring/Summer 2017 Edition
We have no shortage of successful students to highlight, including the hundreds who participated in this spring’s Student Achievement Conference. They benefit from such superb professors as Dr. Mark Wallert in biology and Dr. Dwight Jilek in music, both featured in this issue. We also have an abundance of impressive alums whose lives were shaped by their experiences at Bemidji State. Among them are Fred Baker, Stella Nelson and several others profiled here. Likewise, our ongoing efforts to serve American Indian students and tribal communities — highlighted in the cover story — illustrate our continual determination to do more and do it better.
