As a freshman, I remember in the fall of 1976 Leslie Metz and I were in Swain at a pep rally. Other band members with us would have been Harlan Johnson, Harlan Pettys, Wayne Jundt, Bruce Morlock, Kevin Dammen, Tracey Quarne, Colin Grunert, and others. Against the wishes of Dr. Quebbeman, they brought the large gong from the music department, and when the cheerleaders and different acts did their presentation, they would get “gonged,” if not acceptable. The crowd roared with laughter. At this point, I realized that Minot State College would change my life forever. It did and left me with great memories.
