NDSU President, Coaches and Others to Attend Bison West
The North Dakota State University Alumni Association will host “Bison West” on June 2 at the Missouri-Yellowstone Confluence Interpretive Center near Williston.
Bison West is an opportunity to bring NDSU to communities in western North Dakota, according to Duane Hauck, NDSU Extension Service director.
NDSU President Joseph and Gale Chapman will attend the event, which will be hosted by NDSU alumni Warren and Mary Froelich, Lee Gunlikson and Frank and Katie Keogh.
Also attending will be Amy Ruley, NDSU women’s basketball coach, and Tim Miles, NDSU men’s basketball coach.
“I am looking forward to the trip to the Williston area for Bison West,” Ruley says. “It will give us a great opportunity to meet with the alumni and fans we don't always have a chance to visit. It is a beautiful part of the state with a lot of interesting people."
Miles says he also is looking forward to Bison West.
“We love the camaraderie of our NDSU friends and alumni,” he says. “We also are excited to share our division I athletic experiences with everyone.”
Along with a short program, a barbecue meal will be served. The cost for the event is $5 per person and free for children 12 and under. To register, contact Judy at the NDSU Extension office in Williams County at (701) 577-4595 or go to www.ndsualumni.com/coe/bisonwest/ and click on registration.
The Missouri-Yellowstone Confluence Interpretive Center is a half-mile east of the Fort Buford State Historic Site or 23 miles west of Williston. The center tells the story of the Missouri and Yellowstone rivers and offers the same view Lewis and Clark expedition members saw when they visited the area in 1804 and 1806.
