MSU Hosting 'Experience in Energy Education for North Dakota Secondary School Students'
Minot State University will host "Experience in Education for North Dakota Secondary School Students," a summer seminar for next fall's high school juniors and seniors, June 4-8. With the North Dakota's abundance of natural resources, such as wind, coal and oil, the students will learn from energy-industry experts.
"This unique five-day immersion into the energy industry will give high school participants insight to approach career decisions as confident candidates by providing a solid foundation in the fundamentals of the oil, gas and energy industry," said Tolu Oni, finance instructor, one of the two MSU presenters. "They will leave motivated after gaining teamwork, presentation and writing skills. There will also be field trips and social events."

He possesses 25 years of experience in the oil fields; he holds a doctorate degree in mineral economics with a major in business strategy and finance.
