NDSCS Campus Community Mourns Loss of Andrew Sadek

June 29, 2014

NDSCS has been notified that the body recovered in the Red River north of Breckenridge, Minn., on Friday, June 27th, is that of missing student Andrew Sadek. Our thoughts are with John and Tammy Sadek and their entire family.

The NDSCS campus community shares in their grief. Andrew’s loss has touched all of NDSCS, the communities of Wahpeton-Breckenridge, and a great many individuals throughout the state and region.    

We hope that Andrew’s family finds comfort in the many students, faculty and staff who considered him their friend while he was here. Andrew will always be a member of the Wildcat family, and together we fondly remember the time we shared with this young man.

Daily News: Conference offers presentations on recruitment/training

June 23, 2014

By Matthew Liedke

Approximately 100 visitors from two- and four-year colleges and universities affiliated with the Associated Equipment Distributors are on the campus of North Dakota State College of Science this week for a new conference.

Starting Monday, June 16 and going through Thursday, June 19, NDSCS is hosting numerous presentations and speakers for its Associated Equipment Distributors Instructor Conference.

Presentations during the conference include student recruitment – what works and what doesn’t, lesson plans, subject coverage and keeping on task, the future of construction equipment and hydrostatic trainer, building up or acquiring and setting up for instruction.

The event also includes a full tour of the NDSCS campus as well as a tour of the Bobcat factory in Gwinner, N.D.

The AED Foundation, which is the groups affiliate for education matters, was founded in 1991.

According to information released at the conference, the AED Foundation enhances the success of member companies by encouraging continuous learning by providing the educational opportunities for today’s employees and by improving the ability and quality of equipment industry employees in the future.

On Tuesday, NDSCS President John Richman gave a presentation during the conference called “A College Perspective: College/Industry Partnering and Tech Recruitment Development.”

“We don’t talk jobs, we talk careers,” Richman said in his address to a full lecture room in Horton Hall. “We are trying to show people careers and prove to the students that they don’t have to leave North Dakota.”

Also included in Richman’s comments was the importance of partnerships with companies that provide internships for students and keeping the cost of college affordable.

Daily News: NDSCS Career Awareness Seminar

June 13, 2014

By Matthew Liedke

High school counselors and administrators learn about emerging technology

Colleges often have tours for high school seniors or graduates during the summer, however, visitors at North Dakota State College of Science this past week were high school counselors and administrators during the 8th annual Career Awareness Seminar.

The event invites high school career and technical instructors, counselors and administrators to see new and emerging technologies in the areas of transportation, construction, manufacturing, agriculture, health care and nanoscience.

During the four-day seminar, NDSCS held six sessions on animal science, building construction, mechatronics, auto body repair and refinishing, nursing and culinary arts.

“The goal is to have these school officials spend some time on campus in the various programs and get experience and have in-depth conversations with the instructors,” said Harvey Link, vice president for Academic and Student Affairs at NDSCS.

“It’s a way for people to experience it up close,” Link said. “With feedback, people usually say that it’s eye opening, intriguing and that they are impressed by the equipment and level of technology.”

The event often includes all the departments on campus and invites school staff members from North Dakota, South Dakota, Minnesota, and Montana every year.

“We don’t get a lot of returning people because we want it to be something new for people, we always try to share it,” Link said. “And we have extremely strong responses from those who attend.”

In addition to this “learning by doing” process, delegates have the opportunity to experience speeches and debates from visiting dignitaries.

In addition to electing a governor, delegates also elected several other state office-holders including: Ethan Schwalk of Turtle Lake as Lieutenant Governor, Roman Frias of Minot as Secretary of State, Carter Schimke of Argusville as Attorney General, Kristsakorn “Ben” Twist of Dickinson as State Treasurer, Gannon Karsky of Dickinson as State Auditor, Mark Hintz of Flasher as Commissioner of Agriculture, Joel Weber of Wishek as Superintendent of Public Instruction and Zach Frank of Lidgerwood as Public Service Commissioner.

NDSCS continues to seek help finding missing student Andrew Sadek

June 02, 2014

June 1st marks one-month milestone of missing NDSCS student

Sunday, June 1, 2014 marked the one-month milestone of missing North Dakota State College of Science student Andrew Sadek. Sadek, who was enrolled at the NDSCS Wahpeton Campus, is the son of John and Tammy Sadek and a native of Rogers, N.D. Currently, no new leads in the case have led to Sadek’s whereabouts.

NDSCS Campus Police are continuing to work closely with other law enforcement agencies on any and all leads related to Sadek’s disappearance. The safe return of Sadek to his parents, friends and the NDSCS community remains the focus of this ongoing investigation.

One month ago, Sadek, 20, left Nordgaard Hall on the NDSCS Wahpeton campus around 2 a.m. on Thursday morning, May 1, 2014. Sadek, a Caucasian male, is 6 feet tall and 175 pounds with curly brown hair and brown eyes. He was last seen wearing blue jeans, orange and blue Nike tennis shoes, and a black and red hooded sweatshirt with the words “Tampa Bay Buccaneers Football” on the front. He was also seen carrying a black and silver backpack with a Valley City State University logo.

NDSCS Campus Police urges the public to continue to be watchful during their day-to-day activities and summer travels for any sign of Sadek. If anyone has any knowledge of Sadek’s whereabouts or information related to his disappearance, please contact the NDSCS Campus Police at 701-671-2233.
