Email News Alerts

Though he just took on the position of interim provost at Minnesota State Community & Technical College in Detroit Lakes, Tom Whelihan is no stranger to M State, or to the community.


"This is my 14th year here," he said Wednesday.

Whelihan first came to Detroit Lakes when he was hired to work at the local tech college campus in March 1997; at the time, it was still named Northwest Technical College.

"I was hired as the financial aid director," he said.
