He says he is excited to be in a new community and work to continue to push Minot State forward.
(Dr. Steven Shirley, MSU President) "Minot State University is a fantastic university, this is a wonderful community, and every time you come back, you just, I think, sense and realize that a little bit more. So coming to work now the last couple of days has just really kind of engrained and reinforced those feelings."
