2013 Centennial

Perhaps, our oldest alumna...

I just got the May issue of "Connections." What a great university, magazine and memories.

I attended Minot State Teachers College Sept. 1950 to Dec. 1952. My mother, Isabel (Robinson) Kraft, attended Minot Normal School in 1928 for a three-month teacher's course. She later taught in a typical farm grade school near Douglas.

Isabel turned 103 on July 31. She lives in a second story apartment 12 blocks north of MSU and does everything but drive a car, with no arthritis or rheumatism! She's had the same phone number for 70 years!

My wife and I were in Minot to celebrate Isabel's 103rd birthday and toured the MSU campus, as we do every year. You should all be proud of MSU and their alumni accomplishments.
