The final legacy of the EC belongs to the students who participated in it. Many young women and men look back on their college years as a life-defining time, and former EC students are no exception.
The EC program at MSC was designed for students like Steve Fogarty. Fogarty completed the four-year earth science program at the EC and went on to take a position at Jim Hill Middle School where he still teaches earth science to Minot students.
David Aas, instrumental as a student, learner, and teacher at the inception of the computer center, took his early interest in computer technology and parleyed it into a successful career in information technology.
Beth Stevens took skills that she learned at the EC, including personal involvement and responsibility, and used them to open Artmain, a successful and popular downtown Minot business.
