It the included cities of Detroit Lakes, Moorhead, Fergus Falls, Thief River Falls, Bemidji, Alexandria, Long Prairie, and Wadena. Financial Aid Director Lisa Roesch is the current Treasurer of the Moorhead ‘Beyond the Yellow Ribbon’ steering committee, which was formed just over a year ago. Campus Director Erik Engberg also serves on the committee as well.
“The fact we are a yellow ribbon campus that now resides in a yellow ribbon community is really great,” Engberg said. “A lot of people in the community have worked hard to make this happen.”
Roesch was on stage to help accept the proclamation from the Governor and Congressman Peterson in front of hundred at the Detroit Lakes Pavilion. Roesch has been a big part in the development of the Moorhead Yellow Ribbon Committee.
“It’s an exciting day for the city of Moorhead and for those of us on the steering committee,” Roesch said.
