What I love about Minot

“Although I did not grow up in Minot, the city feels like home. I have always loved the people and the culture in the Magic City. I moved to North Dakota in 2013 to be closer to family and I have been well received by everyone in the community.  There is no question, out of all the places I have lived Minot is the best place to raise my son. The warm reception from the community has inspired me to take this position and share with others how nice the people of Minot are.”
