President's Run Marks 10th Anniversary

Motorcycle and car enthusiasts joined BSC President Larry C. Skogen and family, friends, colleagues and students of retired BSC professor of Mathematics Don Bigwood for a run to Minot this past July. Participants enjoyed lunch at the Scandinavian Heritage Park in Minot followed by a tour of the Dakota Territory Air Museum and a special exhibit of the Texas Flying Legends Warbirds (WWII aircraft) before returning to Bismarck.

Inducted into BSC’s Athletic Hall of Fame in 2010 and bestowed BSC Professor Emeritus status in 2011, Bigwood taught at BSC for 45 years. In recognition of his dedication to education, the Don Bigwood Scholarship Fund was established to support students pursuing math and engineering.
President's Cup Golf Classic
The annual BSC President’s Cup Golf Classic brought 31 teams to Prairie West Golf Course in Mandan in June, and raised almost $14,000 for scholarships for student athletes. 

Following the tournament, Mike Montgomery was inducted into the BSC Athletic Hall of Fame. Montgomery played basketball for the Mystics during the 1969-70 and 1970-71 seasons. His efforts led the Mystics to the Mon-Dak Conference Championship, the North Dakota State Junior College Championship and the NDJCAA Region XIII Championship. He was a two-time All Mon-Dak Conference selection and earned NJCAA All Region XIII honors in 1971.
