FARGO — Cara Mund, the only woman from North Dakota to become Miss America, has graduated from Harvard Law School with cum laude honors.

“This is just the launching pad for what I hope to accomplish next,” Mund said in a statement issued Friay, June 3. “I am so proud to be a North Dakotan. I would have never become Miss America or a Harvard Law School graduate without the determination, courage, and character instilled in me by the incredible people of North Dakota.”

Mund, a Bismarck native who was Miss America in 2018, served as the National Goodwill Ambassador for the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, worked with the Make-A-Wish Foundation and supported troops through the United Service Organizations.

At Harvard Law School, Mund was a teaching fellow, executive editor of operations for the Harvard Journal of Sports and Entertainment Law, a team member of the HLS Mock Trial Association, an editor for the Harvard Journal on Legislation and the Harvard Journal of Law and Gender, and a member of the Women’s Law Association. She also was a certified student attorney in North Dakota and Massachusetts.

In graduating, Mund received the 2022 Kristin P. Muniz Memorial Award, which honors a graduate who's shown dedication to representing clients in criminal courts. She was also recognized as one of the graduates who did more than 1,000 hours of pro bono work.
