April 11 was the inaugural Progress Minnesota day, as proclaimed by Governor Mark Dayton1. Gov. Dayton promotes economic growth through “business enterprises and the development of innovative products and services”. Along with it being Progress Minnesota day, Finance and Commerce held their first annual “Progress Minnesota” awards. These awards recognized thirteen individuals and fifteen organizations for their contribution to the growth of Minnesota.
Among the thirteen individuals is our very own Mr. Ron Ulseth for his excellent work and dedication to the Itasca Community College Engineering Program and the MSU Iron Range Engineering program.
In the organization awards our program, Iron Range Engineering, was honored for using a radically different method of educating engineers while simultaneously keeping these engineers in Minnesota.
The program is proud to receive this reward, and we are also proud to have an award winning instructor/mentor interacting with us a daily basis
