Congratulations to Mark R. Kennedy for becoming the president of the University of Colorado System at age 62. Yes, he deserves our North Dakota support of such an amazing achievement. How many North Dakotans were prepared for obtaining such a position at this time?

Instead, our various media outlets have continued to cast doubt on this man’s fantastic career. Let’s be bigger than we are and realize we now have leader in Colorado that has become a resource for North Dakota. As Zig Ziglar would say, “See you at the top.”

Seymour, West Fargo, served as a North Dakota state senator from 2002 to 2010 and is professor emeritus at Minot State University.
