LOS ANGELES — A West Fargo native will appear on "Jeopardy" for the second night in a row. Blair Moorhead, now of Arlington, Va., won more than $17,000 on last night's episode, so she will be appearing again on tonight's episode . Moorhead graduated from West Fargo High School in 2003 and attended Princeton University in New Jersey. After graduating in 2007, she spent a year in Kenya before returning to the D.C. area to study social work.
FARGO — When Judi Simley walked across the stage Friday at the Sanford Health Athletic Complex, she earned more than just a diploma. She became the first Native American woman to graduate from North Dakota State University with a master's degree in software engineering. But that's not the only first the 42-year-old mother of three can claim. When she graduated in 2009, Simley was the first Native American to graduate with a bachelor's degree in management information systems. She was also the first in her family to attend post-secondary school.
MOORHEAD — Mark Cossette doesn't have to mow much of his front lawn. But neighbors need not worry — it's far from unkempt. In fact, his entire front yard of his north Moorhead home is meticulously landscaped with a variety of beautiful flowers and shrubs as well as a trickling water feature. "It was not for me to have a plain yard," Cossette says.
