BSC students organize roast of lieutenant governor

BISMARCK — A group of students at Bismarck State College plan a roast of North Dakota Lt. Gov. Drew Wrigley to raise money for a student-produced literary journal, according to the college.

The event will be held at the Bismarck State College National Energy Center of Excellence on March 6 and is being organized by students involved with the “Figments of Imagination” literary journal. The journal is a collection of student writing, photography and original artwork.

Guests expected to attend include Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem, Public Service Commissioner Julie Fedorchak and the lieutenant governor’s wife Kathleen Wrigley, among others.

Wrigley was named as lieutenant governor by Gov. Jack Dalrymple in 2010 and was elected in 2012. Wrigley was previously North Dakota’s U.S. attorney from 2001-09 and served as deputy chief of staff for then Gov. John Hoeven from 2000-01.

Tickets for the event are $25 and can be purchased at or at the Bismarck State College Bookstore.
