By Meghan Feir

On Saturday, April 23, 2016, MSUM will once again be hosting an event targeted toward raising money for need-based, merit, academic and athletic student scholarships. Previously known as the Founders Scholarship Gala, the Spring Scholarship Gala is the university’s biggest fundraising event and directly impacts the lives of students across departments.

On a seemingly regular school day, Tomi Thompson got a call from her cousin, MSUM Mass Communications Department Secretary Wendy Olsgard. Deadlines were approaching for scholarship applications and the encouraging cousin knew Thompson was more than qualified.

Fast forward to 2016.

Constructing their futures
BY TRENT ZBICHORSKI

Like a lot of women who choose a professional career in construction management, Minnesota State University Moorhead student Elly Lehn grew up around the business.

Elly3-2 webcopy“My dad started as a diesel mechanic at Veit and is now the executive of fleet operations,” said Lehn, a junior in MSUM’s construction management program. “I couldn’t tell you how many times I sat on my dad’s lap in a bulldozer or an excavator and loved it.” Many women are introduced to the industry this way.

In the male-dominated construction field, just 8.9 percent of women work in the industry nationwide, according to the U.S. Dept. of Labor.  Most often, they are doing clerical or support work.

That’s why Kiewit, one of North America’s largest construction and engineering organizations, sponsors the Women’s Construction Leadership Seminar.

Lehn was one of 50 women from 47 universities across the United States and Canada selected to participate in this year’s seminar to develop leadership skills, network with successful female leaders within the industry, and learn about the challenging opportunities in the construction and/or engineering industries. Nearly 150 women applied for the program. Read the rest of this entry →
