M-State earns $7,500 grant

Beth Pridday, director of Business & Entrepreneurial Services at Minnesota State Community and Technical College in Detroit Lakes, received a $7,500 grant from the National Association for Community College Entrepreneurship on Oct. 12.

The grant was awarded to Pridday during the NACCE Elevator Grant competition in Chicago for a "program pitch" demonstrating that entrepreneurship, energy and creativity do not have to be overcome by a lengthy process.

As a member of the Minnesota State College and Universities System, M State serves more than 6,500 students in credit courses each term through more than 120 career and liberal arts programs at its four campuses in Detroit Lakes, Fergus Falls, Moorhead and Wadena, and online. By partnering with communities, the college also provides custom training services and other responsive training programs.
