for programs & faculty


From Andy It’s been an amazing and consequential year for the University of North Dakota. We’ve seen the University emerge from the shadow of the COVID pandemic to reopen its campus, returning to the active and vibrant environment it’s always been. The hard work and preparation by faculty and staff was rewarded when students came back brimming with excitement and a renewed sense of purpose. Our Fighting Hawks athletics teams got back into action. Plays, concerts, art exhibits, parades, and other events reenergized UND and the surrounding Grand Forks community. Kathy and I appreciated the opportunity to travel around North Dakota to meet with our state’s residents and UND alumni. Working with the North Dakota Legislature, UND received funding for important capital projects and its space initiative. Federal funding allocated by the legislature will cover a major portion of the renovation of Merrifield and Twamley halls to modernize academic spaces and to bring additional faculty and staff to the central campus. As we’ve watched the new Nistler College of Business & Public Administration taking shape, we’ve also dedicated a new Memorial Union, reopened the renovated Chester Fritz Library, and welcomed the Gershman Graduate Center along the strikingly transformed University Avenue. Partnerships are key to the continued success of UND. We have enjoyed and valued the benefits of close working relationships with community leaders, North Dakota’s state and federal officials, businesses, industry, and other institutions of higher education in our state and region. We couldn’t have accomplished all we did in the past year without the valuable assistance from our alumni and the generous support from the UND Alumni Association & Foundation. These are the partnerships that spark opportunities for our students and faculty to shape tomorrow’s leaders for North Dakota. As we close out 2021, my gratitude and appreciation goes out to all those who have so generously committed time and resources to making UND’s comeback year a success. Thanks to those efforts, we can look ahead to 2022 with a vision for the future.

Andrew Armacost President University of North Dakota 6


In the academic hub of campus, where Old Main once stood, is a beacon of light that symbolizes the University of North Dakota: the Old Main Memorial Sphere and its eternal flame. Between Twamley and Merrifield Hall, the globe-shaped metal monument was raised in 1963. Stanley O. Johnson (pictured welding above), then Assistant Professor of Art, created the piece. The small figures that make up the sphere symbolize educational development – how far we’ve come since the birth of our state’s flagship research institution, and our vision for the future. The burning flame is a steadfast reminder of UND’s motto, “Lux et Lex,” translated to “Light and Law,” and has since been inserted into UND’s logo – one of the most recognizable images associated with our University. Years ago, the UND Alumni Association & Foundation created the Eternal Flame Society to recognize our generous donors. The name was carefully chosen as a reminder of the forward-thinkers who have passed the torch of knowledge to the next generation through their financial contributions. We are dedicating this issue to each member of our Eternal Flame Society. In the following pages, you will see the names of more than 5,000 donors who make up each Giving Circle. Their stories uncover their motivation for giving and the impact of their commitment.

The Eternal Flame Society is made up of the following membership levels. A UND alumnus or friend is welcomed into a Circle once their total lifetime giving reaches the levels listed below. Adelphi Circle $5 million+ William Budge Circle $1 million – $4,999,999 Dr. Cora Smith Circle $500,000 – $999,999 Thomas Clifford Circle $100,000 – $499,999 Presidents Circle $10,000 – $99,999 1889 Legacy Society Documented planned gift This issue is the start of our renewed effort to welcome new members and re-welcome faithful contributors of each Giving Circle. Within each name listed and each word written is woven our deepest gratitude for you, our dear alumni and friends. \\\ 7


Adelphi $5,000,000 +

Built in 1907, the Adelphi Fountain was the first purely aesthetic addition to campus as a gift to UND from the Adelphi Literary Society, UND’s first student organization. Since 1928, the fountain has remained on the west bank of the English Coulee between the Hughes Fine Arts Center and Burtness Theatre. At the top of the fountain stands a likeness of Pythia, a Roman oracle and priestess, holding a plate from which inspiration is said to flow out in the form of water. During the Roman era, Pythia was one of the most powerful women in the world due to her wisdom, insightfulness, respected counsel and celebrity. The three muses surrounding the bottom of the fountain represent many cultures. One holds a sheaf of wheat, another a scroll and the third carries a lyre. The wheat sheaf symbolizes charity and love; the field from which it was harvested represents the church. The scroll is a symbol of learning, enlightenment, communication, and sacred writings. The lyre is a symbol of music and harmonics, poetry, classical antiquity, and Greece.


After withstanding the elements of harsh North Dakota winters and floods, the fountain was in growing need of repair. In 2006, a gracious estate gift from Roy and Elnora (Hopper) Danley, ’37, resulted in the restoration of the fountain, the Remembrance Wall and the Hopper Danley Spiritual Center. A brick sidewalk, cement benches and a flowerbed has added to the fountain’s charm. Because of the fountain’s longstanding history, Adelphi was given as the name for the Eternal Flame Society’s most prestigious Giving Circle. Members of this Circle are, like Pythia, respected not only for their generosity, but also for the wisdom and counsel that freely flows out of their love for the University. \\\ Adapted from the Dakota Student.

“Scholarship support is our way to help students avoid a financial burden.” DR. DAVID MON SON

FROM PAINTBRUSH TO STETHOSCOPE Dr. David Monson remembers the moment he received his scholarship to UND. It was the summer of 1957, and he was painting the door of his high school in Climax, Minnesota. With brush in hand, he was handed an envelope with $95 from a visiting professor.

while his wife Lola (Rognlie), ’60, used her home economics education degree to teach. Money was tight, “but it’s not what we’re looking at now,” Dr. Monson confirmed, where the average debt of a UND medical student stands at $167,000.

The couple has built a life in “I was very glad to get that,” Dr. Illinois around Dr. Monson’s Monson recalled. “I had asked cardiothoracic surgery career. for an athletic scholarship, but Though he’s surpassed painting they came up with something doors to earn an income, he else.

who teaches students new technology useful in healthcare practices. The second is the largest scholarship endowment at SMHS. It helps several students each year make their way through medical school. Through their support, the Monsons hope to make the transition from medical school to profession a smooth experience for new graduates. “The volume of information is great and ever-changing as the medical degree is achieved, leaving little time for earning income. Scholarship support is our way to help students avoid a financial burden,” Dr. Monson explained. \\\

For universities, the benefits of endowed faculty are clear: They attract and retain leading scholars and are investments that last far into the future while protecting the university’s operating budget. But what about the donors themselves? For many, the reward is heartfelt, deep, and personal. They are able to thank the University and the outstanding professors who made such a difference in their lives while helping generations of new students experience that same rich education. BY JANELLE VONASEK, ’89 | SPECIAL PROJECTS EDITOR, UND TODAY

TOM OWENS, ’68, was not yet 30 when

“He was one of the best professors I had,” said retired chemical engineer Kristi Brindle, ’78, who helped spearhead the endowment. “He had such an easy way of communicating. There was room for humor, and you always could tell he enjoyed being around his students and his faculty.”

“I didn’t know what I wanted to do for sure when I grew up,” Owens said with a laugh. “But I wasn’t there very long before I realized that wasn’t the place for me. I had the opportunity to stay, but there was absolutely no question what I needed to do.

He also had a knack for getting to know his students, giving them confidence and opening their eyes to new possibilities. For example, Brindle said it was Owens who suggested she major in chemical engineering. The first-generation college student took that advice and went on to have a long and successful career with Texaco in Colorado.

he faced a career choice: academia or Exxon. A UND assistant professor of chemical engineering at the time, Owens packed up his home and young family to head to Houston for a yearlong consulting residency with the oil and gas giant in 1973.

“I realized my place was back with my students in the classroom. I knew UND was the right place for me, so it was no contest to come back.” UND can be glad he did. So can the 800-some chemical engineering students whom Owens would come to challenge, mentor and inspire over his 33 years here. Owens proved to be such an exceptional teacher that his students eventually did their own extraordinary thing: They banded together to endow a professorship in his name. 12

Today, Brindle and a donor list that includes hundreds of former students have paid tribute to their mentor by establishing and providing ongoing support to the Thomas C. Owens Chair of Chemical Engineering Endowment. They hope their gifts will continue to help UND recruit and retain the “best of the best” faculty and the most capable students.



Tom Owens, ’68 professor emeritus

Kristi Brindle, ’78 retired chemical engineer

Owens still gets email and holiday greetings from his former students some 30, 40 and 50 years later. Retired since 2001, he’s now professor emeritus, a status earned after a career in which he chaired the Department of Chemical Engineering for 23 years and served three times as interim dean of the UND College of Engineering & Mines. Looking back on that fateful decision to return to Grand Forks and to teaching 48 years ago, Owens is both humbled by and immensely grateful to his former students for endowing the professorship and chair in his name. “Really, what I think I’ve done is just lend my name to something that’s important and positively contributes to the department, college and University,” he said. “There are chemical engineering students now at UND who wouldn’t recognize me or my name, and that’s just fine.

commitment to teaching excellence

“But what I hope this endowment represents is a commitment to teaching excellence. I want it to enhance opportunities for students and faculty at UND.” Frank Bowman, who today holds the title of Thomas C. Owens Associate Professor, has been enhancing opportunities at UND for almost two decades, exactly as Owens described. The current chair of the Department of Chemical Engineering, Bowman launched a project that trains elementary and middle school teachers of Native American and rural North Dakota students how to integrate engineering tasks into their classrooms. He’s also developed high-quality online courses to enrich the student experience, a focus that has helped UND create one of the nation’s highest-ranked online engineering programs.

lifelong impact on students

WELL-ROUNDED AND READY UND alumni and benefactors Rick and Jody Burgum share this sentiment for excellence in education. Rick is a 1968 philosophy graduate; Jody earned her degree in elementary special education in 1974. And for years, both have had a special affection for UND’s College of Arts & Sciences, where their son and daughter also earned undergrad degrees before achieving M.B.A. and law degrees elsewhere. “Arts & Sciences introduces people to so many different areas of life. It’s just a wonderful base no matter what you end up doing,” Jody said. Rick seconded this passion for the liberal arts and added: “I want it to be clear to the world that UND is a first-class educational institution. We’d like to see a whole slug of Merit Scholars coming to UND — not just because they got a scholarship, but because they want to learn from the best educators. “The endowed chair lets us make an impact on many students over many years. That’s what interests us most. The better the professors, the better the education. It lifts everybody up and raises the bar.”

Simona Barbu Burgum Endowed Chair of Music

World-renowned cellist and educator Simona Barbu has been raising that bar at UND since 2011. That’s when the highly

most valuable assets


decorated musician was selected as the Burgum Endowed Chair of Music. Earlier, she had performed as a soloist throughout the United States and held residencies at conservatories and universities in China, Hungary and her native Romania.

“The endowed chair lets us make an impact on many students over many years. … The better the professors, the better the education. It lifts everybody up and raises the bar.” RICK BURGUM, ’68 Said Jody Burgum, “It’s a great feeling to be able to provide students this kind of opportunity to experience such a wonderful cellist. I think really fabulous instructors make for a much better school and institution.” The Burgums since have created a second endowed faculty position in Arts & Sciences which will become the Burgum Arts & Sciences Endowed Chair.

THE MULTIPLIER EFFECT Longtime UND supporter and retired Cargill CEO Greg Page is another alum who understands the power of the multiplier effect in higher education. The 1974 UND economics graduate who led one of the largest privately held companies in America believes outstanding faculty rank among the most valuable assets for any university. “I was an enormous beneficiary of some very effective teachers in my time there,” Page said. “In my 42 years of working in the business world, I found myself thinking almost every day of something a professor once said, or some particular piece of knowledge they offered. And on many of those occasions, that knowledge played a role in a challenge or opportunity that was in front of me.” It was practical knowledge for the real world, Page said, and it was part of his motivation for establishing the Page Endowed Chair in Applied Economics at UND’s Nistler College of Business & Public Administration. Chih Ming Tan, the first to hold the endowed chair, is an applied econometrician who researches inequality, mobility, global health and economic growth and development. He says the endowment has enabled

top-quality courses

him to bring top experts from all fields to interact with UND faculty and students, and share their research. At UND, “we may be geographically disadvantaged, but we’re not intellectually isolated,” Tan said. “And that’s critical.”

Scan with your phone’s camera app to learn more about creating an endowment at UND.

Page agreed. “I believe endowments are a great way to support the University,” he said. “It may be the No. 1 way we can enable a university to employ that highest level of faculty that both attracts and retains students. Certainly, we need good facilities and other things, but in the absence of outstanding faculty, I just don’t think a university can prosper.” When Page and the other donors were students, some of them were learning the ground rules for grammar or politics, while others were devising equations for liquidto-gas transfer phenomena or exploring macroeconomics. But clearly, they all had one thing in common: outstanding professors who made an enduring impact on their lives and livelihoods. That’s what they want to give back to their University and its future students, and that’s why they’ve chosen endowed faculty as a terrific way to do so. \\\

William Budge $1,000,000 - $4,999,999

William “Billy” Budge (1852-1938) was a Scotsman, politician, businessman and pioneer of his time who played a large hand in securing the location of the University of North Dakota. Budge donated the original 20 acres of land to the University. At the time, he owned most of the land between downtown Grand Forks and today's UND campus. Budge had a large hand in “rescuing” UND on several occasions. At one point, he convinced President Webster Merrifield to turn down an offer from the University of Montana, which led the prominent UND leader and several faculty members to stay at UND. Budge and Merrifield then began a vigorous campaign for private financial support to sustain the University’s faculty members after the governor vetoed state funding to UND. Budge immigrated to the U.S. from Scotland as a teenager. His willingness to try his hand at any job once his ship landed was kindling for his business savviness later in life. Budge’s diverse portfolio included serving as a cook, a bartender, working in a Canadian fur post and in a brick factory, and running a stagecoach line. He even served as the Grand Forks postmaster and sheriff for a time. 16

Together with other early city leaders, Budge helped develop the first brick business block in Grand Forks in 1883, now in the heart of downtown Grand Forks. He was also a leading figure among UND’s first group of Trustees and served from 1891-1907. Budge Hall was built in his honor in 1899 and served as a men’s dormitory until 1981. The William Budge Circle recognizes donors who, like Budge, have forged a path that many pioneers have followed. His willingness to work hard at many endeavors coupled with his foresight and commitment to the University and Grand Forks have paved the way for those who have continued building on what Budge began. \\\

William Budge CIR CL E


WORTH THE RISK Bart Holaday, a graduate of the U.S. Air Force Academy, built his career as an entrepreneur, an asset manager and an early adopter of venture capital investing. When venture capital, a risky but profitable investment method, was gaining popularity in the 1980s, Bart was invited to present it to the North Dakota State Investment Board. From the front of the fiscally conservative room, he could tell receptivity was waning. “Everybody was just shaking their heads except for two people who were smiling at me. One was my mother, and the other was Bruce Gjovig.” At the time, Gjovig, ’74, was CEO of UND’s Center for Innovation (CFI). 18

Of similar ideals, Bart and Bruce formed a partnership – Bruce offered the opportunity for Bart to teach students his investing techniques while Bart funded several entrepreneurial programs through the foundation he established with his late wife, Lynn. One such program was the Dakota Venture Group, the nation’s first student-run fund that allows students to experience capital investing using seed money provided by the program. “When we originally put the money in, I figured the worst-case scenario was we would lose $400,000 but that some students would learn something,” said Bart.

Since 2006, 250 students have graduated from the program and the fund has grown to nearly $1.5 million. “It has turned out to be far better than I ever dreamed. It’s been a tremendous tribute to what students can do if you give them the freedom to chart their own direction. I think it’s the best investment I ever made.” Although he didn’t graduate from UND, Bart has become a trusted advisor and friend of the University, serving on the board of CFI and the UND Alumni Association & Foundation. In 2006, he received an honorary degree. Bart and his wife, Cathy (pictured), live in Colorado Springs where they manage the Dakota Foundation. \\\

Dr. Cora Smith $500,000-$999,999

Physician. Surgeon. Teacher. Elocutionist. Mountaineer. Activist. Suffragist. Dr. Cora Smith (1867 – 1939) lived an unconventional life, and her work advocating votes for women is still remembered a century later. A member of UND’s first graduating class in 1889, Smith taught at the newly formed University of North Dakota while still a student and continued teaching after her graduation. Famed for her speaking abilities, she went on to become the first licensed woman physician in North Dakota. Most of all, she is remembered for her work in advocating voting rights for women. On campus, Smith Hall bears her name. After graduating from UND, Smith studied medicine at Boston University. During the North Dakota Constitutional Convention, Henry Blackwell, a national suffrage advocate, addressed the constitutional convention and chose Smith as his representative. A popular orator as well as a regional celebrity, she lobbied at the convention. In 1890, Cora and her mother, Sara Smith, became the first women to vote in Grand Forks in a school election.


Even after taking a job as a physician for the Minneapolis Maternity Hospital, Smith continued as president of the North Dakota Suffrage Association and to advocate for suffrage in both states. Smith later moved to Seattle and built a medical practice. There, she became involved in the Washington state suffrage movement, as well as mountaineering. In 1909, she planted a “Votes for Women” flag on top of Mount Rainier. The UND Alumni Association & Foundation recently added a circle to the Eternal Flame Society in honor of Dr. Cora Smith. Members of this circle are applauded for their actions, like Smith’s, to advocate for students and education in North Dakota through their giving. \\\ Adapted from UND Today.

EQUIPPING STUDENTS ON AND OFF THE ICE Marc Chorney, ’81, credits UND with changing his life forever. Recruited to play hockey in 1977, Marc met his college sweetheart and now wife, Lynn, while achieving the degree that would set him on his path. Marc and Lynn have been giving back to UND for a quartercentury, helping dozens of student-athletes achieve their education. Through their philanthropy, they want to see student-athletes excel on and off the ice.

Hockey runs deep in the blood of the Chorney family. After playing hockey for UND, Marc was drafted by the Pittsburgh Penguins in 1979. Their son, Taylor, played three years of UND hockey before his professional career with the Edmonton Oilers, and their son, Marcus, is a senior playing for Quinnipiac University.

The Chorneys have provided a tremendous amount of relief for UND Hockey “We want to give back to student-athletes. A generous UND to thank them for all scholarship gift in 2010 has they’ve given to us. I don’t supported student-athlete think we could ever pay back scholarships for the past everything that we’ve gotten, 12 years, and they recently but we want to help as much helped create the 1980 as we can,” Marc said. National Championship Team Endowment together 22

with 25 of Marc’s former teammates. Their goal is to have every player from their championship team contribute to the fund.

Through the years, Marc and Lynn have developed special connections with scholarship recipients. “Every year we get a nice letter from a student-athlete who has received a scholarship from us; it means the world to us. We feel a special connection to them after that and cheer them on throughout the remainder of their athletic career,” he said. The Chorneys aren't cheering alone. Together with lifelong friends made at UND, they're proud to support the Kelly green. \\\

Thomas Clifford $100,000 - $499,999

Thomas J. Clifford (1921-2009) was UND’s longest-serving leader, dedicating 21 years as UND’s president. Clifford spent over a half-century on campus as a student, faculty, dean, and finally president from 1971-92. He was the first North Dakotan to hold the office. Under his leadership, the University saw important developments in student enrollment numbers, research, the medical school, aerospace programs, and the Energy & Environmental Research Center. He forged relationships with tribal partners and implemented instructional Native American programs in medicine and other fields. From his namesake, Clifford Hall, he led UND’s Aerospace Foundation into his 80s. Clifford’s experience at UND began as an accounting student, a law student and part-time instructor. He was just 29 when he was named dean of the College of Commerce in 1950 – the youngest dean in UND’s history. Nine years later, after earning a master’s degree in public administration at Stanford University, he became UND’s vice president for finance.


A decorated Marine veteran, he exuded energy and charisma mixed with candor and accessibility that earned students’ affection and respect. As a graduate of UND, he easily empathized with their experiences. He was quick to seek out the opinions of others to inform his decisions and direction for the University. In 2002, UND awarded Clifford an honorary doctorate. That same year, he received the Theodore Roosevelt Roughrider Award, North Dakota’s highest honor. Thomas Clifford has not only been one of UND’s greatest leaders but is recognized as one of the nation’s most effective university presidents. The Thomas Clifford Circle applauds donors who give at a leadership level. Like Clifford, members of this Circle have a vital role in helping UND, its programs, and our students develop as industry leaders. \\\

GIFTS TO GO THE EXTRA MILE Kevin Kiefer never got the chance to attend graduate school, but today he’s making it his mission to be sure other aspiring engineers do.

“My main advice to students would be to stay after undergrad and get their master’s degree. I wish that I could’ve pursued mine but there wasn’t enough money available at the time. That’s why I give back: for the one student who would’ve stayed around if he or she saw a little bit of money available. That’s where I want my legacy to go,” Kevin said. Kevin graduated with a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering in 1972 and landed a job immediately out of college


working in energy research and development. In 2007, he retired from a successful 31-year-long career with Thermo King, a manufacturer of transport temperature control systems for trucks, trailers, shipboard containers and railway cars. He and his wife, Kathie, now live in Gardnerville, Nevada, and enjoy supporting future engineers. Kevin has steadfastly supported UND for the past 40 years, starting with his first $50 gift in 1981.

Recently, he and Kathie pledged $50,000 to the Kiefer Family Engineering Scholarship Endowment. They declared their intention to give another $50,000 through

a gift in their will, supporting students at the College of Engineering & Mines. “Giving back is important to me. I feel like it’s my duty to pay back what was given to me, and I really want to help students succeed,” Kevin said. They hope their gifts encourage students to go the extra mile by pursuing a graduate degree from UND. Kevin is a firm believer that continued education is a great step for launching a successful career in engineering. “We want our money to support students who want to earn a graduate degree but maybe wouldn’t have had the funds to do so if it wasn’t for our gift,” Kevin said. \\\

President 's $10,000 - $99,999

UND has benefited from 13 presidents and four acting presidents in its 138 years. During their terms, each has made their mark sustaining and elevating UND through drought, floods, economic downturns, wars and pandemics. They have come from across the nation to lead. Graduates from prominent institutions like Yale and MIT to our very own University of North Dakota, each has been tasked to uphold the principles that UND was founded upon. Ministers, military veterans and leaders, educators and authors, businessmen and politicians – their backgrounds vary but a common thread of commitment to UND runs through. Because of them, UND is the public flagship research institution that stands today. The faces, the voices, and the heart behind the University, these presidents have established athletic programs, academic success, and student life on campus as we know it.


They have taken actions that have turned the eyes of the region, nation, and world to Grand Forks. Their decisions have been made keeping in mind those on campus, those who once were, and those who will be. The President’s Circle gets its name from the commitment that donors make to support UND’s vision, which is shaped and guided by the sitting president. We feel pride and love with each new name added to this Circle. To you, we raise our grateful song. \\\

Teachers benefit from a unique program that offers them financial assistance – and so much more – to attain a master’s degree.

MRS. JAMES’ second-graders

at Badlands Elementary School in Watford City, North Dakota, are surprised to hear that she is a student just like them. They have learned this because a reporter from the UND Alumni Magazine is snapping photos during class on a Friday morning in December. “You’re a student?” asks one curious second grader. “Does your husband know?” asks another. Lindsey James explains that she’s studying to get her master’s degree from the University of North Dakota. Just like them, she has homework and gets graded on her mastery of the subject matter.

BURGUM SCHOLARS James is not the only teacher in her western North Dakota school district currently pursuing a UND master’s degree via online learning. Fifteen teachers here take part in the UND College of Education & Human Development’s new Partnership for Rural Education in North Dakota program.

Through a generous $250,000 grant from the Burgum Foundation, program participants receive 50% tuition assistance. Watford City was chosen for the pilot program, which aims to create a cohort of teachers in the same district working collaboratively toward advanced degrees.

factor. Having a cohort of fellow teachers has been a bonus as they collaborate on research that can make their district better.

The Burgum Foundation was established in 2015 by Rick, ’68, and Jody (Stibbe) Burgum, ’74, to continue their lifelong commitment to philanthropy.


“I would just pour out my heart to them,” said James when asked what she would say in the way of thanks to Rick and Jody. “I never thought this would be me in a million years. I always thought, ‘bachelor’s degree and I’m done.’ A master’s degree would never be attainable financially, so I’m very, very grateful.” High School Social Studies Teacher Logan Suter and his wife, Cassie Suter, an elementary Literacy Coach, are both Burgum Scholars in the district. He says it was a “no brainer” to apply to the program with the financial assistance being a major

“It’s nice that there are 15 of us going through it at the same time,” said Suter. “We have conversations outside of the normal collaboration you would have.” Burgum Foundation Executive Director Katie (Burgum) Itterman, ’03, says the program’s focus on rural educators was appealing. “We were interested in a program that would give rural teachers equal access and opportunity to master’s-level programming in their own school districts,” she said. “We wanted them to have an opportunity to learn from phenomenal professors while continuing to teach in their schools and learn from their peers as part of a cohort. For us, this model is key because they are learning not just independently, but as part of a cohort that, in the end, makes their school district so much stronger.”



Calina Krogen, who helps administer the program, agrees. She says the program has been influential in student achievement. “Effective schools are the backbone of the community,” said Krogen. “With the cohort model, these teachers are able to do research projects that can have an immediate impact on our district.” Dr. Jared Schlenker, ’09, helps run the program from the UND campus. He says some of the research conducted in Watford City during the spring of 2021 was understandably focused on remote learning, given that most of the data used would have come from fall 2020. “That’s beneficial information,” said Schlenker. “Google


Classroom was one of the projects that several teachers collaborated on. Has that been beneficial to student learning? Now that most classes are again face-to-face, that’s still vital information on how Google Classroom can be utilized to benefit students.”

“These [undergraduate] students may not know that Watford City exists out here in the western part of the state,” said Krogen. “So, bringing them as part of the Burgum program allows them to see what we do and cultivate them as potential student-teachers or teachers down the road.”

Another goal of the program was to bring UND faculty to Watford City for in-person teaching. Although the pandemic has limited those interactions, professors have made the trip several times, twice bringing undergraduate students to tour the district.

“What UND brings to the table is our expertise in online learning,” said Schlenker. “What I really think makes us unique is the enthusiasm that I’m not only seeing from the students, but our instructors as well. To have that buy-in from professors at UND is really key to the success of the program.”

Administrator Krogen says the connections made between Watford City and UND through this program have been invaluable.

This year’s Burgum Scholars are: back row (l to r): Logan Suter, Sara Boom, Rachelle LaGree, Jacob Lawler, Cassandra Longbrake; middle: Delanie Hill, Cassie Suter, Kallie Knutson, Kasie Gotschall, Lindsey James, Nicole Brew, ’07; front: Pam Moen, ’92, Rebecca Jordan, Olivia Dwyer, and Clarissa Hooper.

BUCKET LIST Pam Moen, ’92, has been an educator for 29 years. Thanks to the Partnership for Rural Education in North Dakota program, she is checking off an item on her bucket list. “We are very fortunate to have this program,” said Moen. “I’m closer to the end of my career than the beginning, but this program has been a catalyst for me to continue with my education. I’m very appreciative.”

Moen hopes to be able to come to the UND campus for Commencement. It’s important to her to show her grandchildren what can be accomplished when you put your mind to something. “I’ve told our younger teachers that they should walk across the stage, too,” said Moen. “They have young kids that should really see them do this.” \\\

After becoming a mechanical engineer, Steve spent 11 years working for GE Energy in Central and Eastern Europe, developing and executing strategic plans for all GE Energy profit centers across

19 countries. In 2008, he pursued his dream of becoming an entrepreneur and co-founded KS Energy in Botswana and Nigeria, Africa, now one of the fastest-growing African energy companies on the continent. In 2018, after more than two decades working and living in Africa, Steve had an idea. “I wanted to help an Indigenous kid from North Dakota who had knowledge in engineering and lead them off the beaten path where they could experience the similarities and differences between cultures in Africa,” he said. Steve worked with UND’s College of Engineering & Mines to establish a cultural exchange internship for three Native American engineering

students. While they gained valuable career experience and were immersed in African culture, he covered their travel and living expenses. Steve still mentors all three students and plans to continue the program to give unique opportunities to more Indigenous students. His biggest dream is to use his knowledge and resources to help students learn from a different perspective and encourage them to take chances throughout their career.


Since he was a child, Steve Martin, ’89, has dreamed of becoming many things: a mechanical engineer, an entrepreneur and a philanthropist to his community. Thanks to a lot of hard work and his time at the University of North Dakota, Steve has achieved those dreams. As a member of the Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa Indians with over 28 years of energy project experience, he now feels equipped to help Native American students at UND fulfill their dreams.

“When I’m gone, I want to be remembered as a leader who taught people to be open minded, dream big and make decisions that benefit communities and people,” Steve said. \\\ 61


employees of the University of North Dakota make it run on all cylinders. When one cylinder breaks down, they fix it before the problem has time to wreak havoc. They’re on speed dial in every department, helping out with a nod and a “you bet,” or “anytime.” They’re our technicians whose expertise and equipment resolve crises and prevent so many more. They bring us to the next level, working on

UND’s technological advances that make us industry leaders. These unsung heroes’ faithful work impacts the multitude but is often understood by only a few. When they’re gone, the gaping hole left behind becomes obvious to all that it’s not easy to fill.

Academic Support Services department at the John D. Odegard School of Aerospace Sciences. David helped create programs and solve technology problems for Aerospace students, instructors and supervisors alike.


On May 22, 2021, David’s life ended unexpectedly from a heart attack.

David Horne, ’85, ’88, was one of these heroes. Known informally as “Jack of all trades,” he held the official title of Interactive Systems Analyst for the

Since then, the Hornes have lived in the same neighborhood. His parents carry a lifetime of memories, including David's work on his master's thesis and his UND graduation. right: Tom DiLorenzo (1956-2020), then UND Provost, awards David Horne (1962-2021) for his 25 years of service to the University of North Dakota. Both men served UND faithfully in different ways and have left a legacy in their absence.




SUPER SMART, FULL OF HEART Family and friends honor David Horne, a UND employee who made Aerospace courses accessible worldwide through distance education.

After getting over the shock, David’s parents Robert (Bob) and Deanne Horne, along with David’s wife Shelley, discussed how to best commemorate David’s life and service to UND. They established the David K. Horne Family Memorial Scholarship to benefit physics students. “We look at it as a double impact,” said Bob. “One, we want to strengthen UND and help it grow and educate more students and prepare them for the future. Second, it makes us feel good that, through David’s memory, we are helping future students get their degree in physics and have an impact in society.”

Physics was David’s first love – the focus of his undergraduate and master’s degrees at UND.

“ David was a close friend to everyone at Aerospace whose paths he crossed.” Shortly after graduating, he landed a job with the Odegard School when the Aerospace Network (ASN) was built. Through use of the multimedia production facility,

David helped launch distance education courses through satellite broadcasting to a handful of universities. “We were doing this long before any other school,” said Robert Cary, ’84, Audio/ Video Producer & Director and David’s supervisor. “UND has always been a leader in distance education, and David had a hand in that.” When internet came on the scene, David uploaded classes online, spreading the School of Aerospace’s influence from the region to the world and putting the school on the map in terms of distance learning.


FEATURE: SUPER SMART, FULL OF HEART David’s memory is carried on by his team. (From left) Lee Smith, Robert Cary and Henry Borysewicz spent hours with David in the ASN Control Room creating distance education materials for the School of Aerospace.

FOR THE LOVE OF THE JOB In 1982, David married his high school sweetheart Shelley (Kautzman) Horne, Ph.D., ’85, ’87, ’94, They enjoyed settling into married life as students at UND. After Shelley started working in the Veterinary and Microbiological Sciences department at NDSU in Fargo, David began commuting to UND – which he would continue for the next 27 years. Often questioned about his decision to drive, he was quick to give assurance that the car ride was a time to think and decompress. To his family, friends and colleagues, it was apparent that the love of the job is what kept him on the road 160 miles a day – blizzard, rain or shine.


The School of Aerospace is still picking up the pieces following David’s death. More than his professional expertise, it’s his friendship that David’s colleagues mourn the most. “You don’t go to work with someone five days a week for 20-some-odd-years and not become friends. David was a close friend to everyone at Aerospace whose paths he crossed,” said Henry Borysewicz, ’98, director of the College’s Academic Support Services. At David’s funeral service, a former roommate of David’s summarized him as “super scary smart.” Henry agreed. “He was the guy that would take care of anything, fix anything for you. Even if he didn’t know how to do it,

he would say, ‘Yes, we can do that.’ And then he would figure it out,” he said. His brains were matched by his heart. David would lend a hand for anyone in need. His second cousin, Rachel (Lindemann) Bakken, ’10, told a story at the funeral service. She was a freshman at UND who had just moved from Nevada. Although the two barely knew each other, Rachel called David in a panic about a roommate crisis. A few hours later, David showed up at her door to help move her out of the situation. “I think I would have gone back to Nevada if he hadn’t helped me,” said Rachel, who graduated with her nursing degree four years later and now works at Essentia Health-Fargo.

A RICH FAMILY TRADITION David’s commitment to UND was passed on by his parents. His mother Deanne, ’75, a first-generation college student, earned her master’s degree in special education from UND. His father Bob, ’64, earned his master’s in history from UND and his doctorate from the University of Montana. “We always thought that UND was the top of the education pyramid in North Dakota, and we wanted to be part of that,” said Bob. Between David’s parents, aunts/uncles, cousins, niece and two brothers, the Hornes have a rich family tradition at UND. Together, 13 members of the Horne family have earned 19 degrees from UND. Bob served in the North Dakota Senate and helped sponsor the original bill that would change the future

of philanthropy in North Dakota. In 2007, the North Dakota Income Tax Credit bill passed, which eventually allowed up to a 40% tax credit for a minimum $5,000 donation to a qualified North Dakota endowment. That was one of Bob’s proudest achievements serving in the state legislature. Since then, he and Deanne have used the benefit many times in their philanthropy to nonprofits and churches throughout the state, including the endowment they established at UND in honor of David. Through this endowment, the Hornes are carrying on David’s memory by helping produce more “super scary smart” professionals who will use physics to solve the world’s problems, just as David did. \\\


A N E N D O W ME N T Endowments are longterm investments in the University of North Dakota that benefit students, faculty, or programs year after year. The UND Alumni Association & Foundation manages and invests endowed funds to ensure a dependable income stream for designated programs. Anyone may establish an endowment, either individually or with a group. Naming opportunities create a way to honor an individual, family, or business, just like the Hornes did for David.

This Society was proudly named to recognize the year the UND Alumni Association was founded. On June 13, 1889, the first eight graduates of the University of North Dakota met after commencement ceremonies and together they formed the UND Alumni Association. It was the start of our proud tradition of alumni loyalty and support. Qualifying gifts include a bequest in will or revocable living trust, designation of the UND Foundation as beneficiary in an insurance policy or retirement plan, or a life income gift or life estate gift of a residence or farm property. The 1889 Legacy Society is our humble way to express gratitude for planned gifts of any size or type to benefit the University of North Dakota. Through their generosity, 1889 Legacy Society members leave a powerful and impactful legacy of support for future


generations at the University of North Dakota. The 1889 Legacy Society has over 1,000 members.

1889 Legacy S OCIE T Y

“My mom and dad fully funded my education, so I obtained a bachelor’s degree debt free. I know not everyone has that luxury, so I want to be able to help those students through my legacy.” DR. MARY BRYNGELSON

DR . M A R Y ( M A R T IN ) B R Y N GE L S O N , ’ 76



Dr. Mary (Martin) Bryngelson, ’76, has a genuine desire to help the next generation of learners. As a UND graduate with expertise in mathematics, supporting math majors is a mission near and dear to her heart. The financial sacrifice that her parents made in support of their children’s education is what inspired her to help students at UND.


“My mom and dad fully funded my education, so I obtained a bachelor’s degree debt free. I know not everyone has that luxury, so I want to be able to help those students through my legacy,” Dr. Bryngelson said. To honor their sacrifice, Dr. Bryngelson has left a

generous gift to UND in her Will that will establish a permanent endowed fund in honor of her parents, Buster and Margie Martin. Her generous contributions will support scholarships for math students, relieving their financial burden. “I hope other people consider giving back. As I get older, I think more about estate planning. I renewed my testamentary gift because I feel strongly about my money supporting the students in the math department,” Dr. Bryngelson said. After earning a degree from UND, she pursued her Ph.D. in higher education administration from Florida

State. Following her education, she launched her career as a math teacher in England and went on to work in higher education administration at UND and the University of Missouri. She also worked in environmental studies and finished her career in healthcare leadership. Dr. Bryngelson now resides in Montana and Arizona and is excited to leave a lasting legacy to math students. “I’ve been grateful to all the educators at UND who helped me launch into an amazing career path. I’ve really had some wonderful opportunities and I hope to provide the same for students,” she said. \\\
