Dr. Carrie Brimhall, chief academic officer at Minnesota State Community and Technical College, has been selected by the Minnesota Jaycees as one of their 2015 Ten Outstanding Young Minnesotans.
The Jaycees program is Minnesota’s only statewide recognition program for outstanding young leaders between the ages of 18 and 40. The program acknowledges the accomplishments of men and women who contribute to the state through their service, thought and influence, community involvement or entrepreneurship.
In nominating Brimhall, Fergus Falls Jaycees President Nick Mariotti wrote that, “Our community is lucky to have such a dedicated and hard-working person make Fergus Falls her home. Her activities encompass all key areas of the Jaycees – she excels in management development, community development and individual development – the embodiment of our organization.”
Brimhall and the other nine honorees will be recognized at a special Jaycees state awards celebration Sept. 12 in Fergus Falls.
In 2013, M State’s Dave Jensen was also chosen as one of the Jaycees’ Ten Outstanding Young Minnesotans. Jensen, the student life director on the college’s Fergus Falls campus, was honored after biking cross-country in 19 days to raise money for a Fergus Area College Foundation scholarship.
