Research Extension Centers honor 10 people for their years of service.

North Dakota State University Research Extension Center (REC) staff were honored for their years of service to the N.D. Agricultural Experiment Station at the Oct. 18-20 NDSU Extension Service/Research Extension Center fall conference in Fargo.

Those recognized were:

5 Years

  • Rickie Bohn, Central Grasslands REC, Streeter
  • Jon Henderson, North Central REC, Minot
  • Shana Forster, North Central REC
  • Michael Schaefer, Carrington REC

10 Years

  • Timothy Indergaard, Carrington REC
  • Todd Ingebretson, Carrington, REC
  • Wanda Ottmar, Dickinson REC

50 Years

  • Timothy Faller, N.D. Agricultural Experiment Station, Mandan

Rarely does NDSU have someone serve the university for 50 years, said Randy Mehlhoff, Langdon REC director, when he presented the award to Faller.

Faller started working in the Animal Husbandry department as a student in 1964 and became an assistant shepherd in 1966. He was named director of the Hettinger Research Extension Center (then called superintendent of the Hettinger substation) in 1969. Faller retired as the Hettinger REC director in 2005 but has continued to carry out a variety of responsibilities as part-time assistant director of the N.D. Agricultural Experiment Station.
