DICKINSON, N.D.—U.S. Sen. John Hoeven, R-N.D., said the National Parks Foundation committed to "ongoing" support for the Theodore Roosevelt Presidential Library and Museum at a recent hearing of the Senate Energy and National Resources committee. Hoeven said in a phone interview that Will Shafroth, president of the National Park Foundation, personally gave his support at the committee hearing.
The Dickinson Public School District School Board unanimously moved to make an offer to Dr. Shon Hocker of Cowley, Wyo., to become Dickinson Public Schools' next superintendent. He has accepted the offer pending finalization of the contract.
Work continues on the design for the Theodore Roosevelt Presidential Library building that will be built on Dickinson State University land, despite uncertainty voiced about the project's direction at Monday's meeting of the Theodore Roosevelt Presidential Library and Museum Foundation Board of Trustees.
Following a decision to split the Theodore Roosevelt Presidential Library and Museum into two locations in March, Monday morning saw the museum's board of trustees meet and agree upon setting aside a few weeks to re-discuss that plan. A motion was passed to establish a subcommittee that would help the board find a "consensus" as they move forward with plans to construct a roughly $150 million Theodore Roosevelt Presidential Library and Museum in two locations, Dickinson and Medora. Planning on the Dickinson location will continue during this time.
The Dickinson Public School Board on Monday released the name of a third finalist for the role of superintendent, Justin Fryer, a superintendent in the Solen Public School District. The reason he was not named earlier was because the two named candidates, Shon Hocker and Matthew Cheeseman, were considered more ideal for the role than Fryer is due to their experience in managing large school districts.
Dickinson State University has for more than 25 years brought the whole dang farm to town -- and it’s gearing up to do it again on Thursday, April 19. “We like to do it, we like to see the kids who come get all excited about the things we do,” Callie Loftsgard, president of the DSU Agriculture Club, who traditionally organize and put on the event, said. “We enjoy it, so it’s not really hard for us to put together.”
The only thing I believe in is myself, and even that I know is a lie. This is a truly tragic circumstance and I come upon this realization as I nurse my petrified pride rooting in the tangles of my stomach, staring at a flurry of April snowflakes that seem to be making mockery of the birdsong I hear pleading from the nearby scattering of trees.
The Dickinson Public School Board Thursday night determined the final two candidates for the position of superintendent for the Dickinson Public School district, bringing a search process that has drawn some criticism closer to its end.
The Dickinson Public School Board has narrowed down its two final candidates for the position of superintendent of the district to two finalist candidates: Dr. Shon Hocker, currently superintendent in the Big Horn School District of Cowley, Wyoming and Matthew Cheeseman, who is superintendent of Perquimans County Schools in Hertford, North Carolina. Cheeseman is currently enrolled in Liberty University where he is working on his doctorate in education.
The Dickinson School Board will hold three separate meetings Thursday, April 12, interviewing four candidates for the position of superintendent for Dickinson Public School District.
