Editor's Note

Editors-Note-Images-Fall17-200x248in each issue of Moorhead Magazine, we like to feature a general theme that transcends all majors. This issue is about finding passion, pursuing dreams and thriving entrepreneurs. Each story demonstrates the grit, humility and heart of a Dragon. A special thank you to our contributing writers and MSUM professors, Dr. Deneen Gilmour and Kennan Meyer. Your voices contribute greatly to Moorhead Magazine!

There are thousands of untold stories, so be bold and consider sharing yours with us. Upcoming themes include service, missions and ministries; food and drink; preserving the past; and animation. If you have an idea that falls generally into one of these topics, I’d love to hear about it and perhaps we will share it in an upcoming issue. Who knows? It may encourage a future entrepreneur, energize a young teacher or inspire a future healer.

This online version of our magazine includes a feature on another teller of stories, Danielle Nadler ’05 (mass communications). She is a founder and managing editor of Loudoun Now, a startup community newspaper in northern Virginia and the author of “Without a Trace: The Life of Sierra Phantom.”

Often, stories in Moorhead Magazine trigger comments, positive and negative. Our last issue on diversity was no different. I appreciate your comments and value your opinions. Feel free to write your comments online to share with others. It might start an interesting dialogue or introduce ideas not previously considered.
