The Anstrom scholarship gave me the ability to pursue the field of science in a totally different realm. It, along with NDU’s support at a local and state level, made it possible for me to get my Master’s of Science, and develop a deeper understanding of science, which I pass on everyday in my classes.

I am so very thankful that North Dakota United helped fund my training in Collaborative Problem Solving. I was able to attend a three-day training at Massachusetts General in Boston, facilitated by Dr. Stuart Ablon.  It was a life-changing experience. I’ve been using this approach with multiple students this year with much success. I hope to become certified so I can train others in the state in the near future.

The North Dakota United Foundation has allowed me to pursue my master’s degree, and in doing so, given the students at Hatton High School the opportunity to have college-level math courses offered in our building. The NDU Foundation has not only made a huge difference in my life, but also in the lives of my students!
