MINOT – With the controversy of the Pledge of Allegiance and whether it should be recited, one man took to the podium with confidence to say it.
At the Minot City Council meeting Monday, Paul Stroklund, a retired 30-year active duty and combat veteran with the Army and Army National Guard, led the council and audience in the pledge.
Stroklund currently serves as a volunteer for the Employer’s Support of the Guard and Reserve.
“Paul Stroklund’s wife Pam was just awarded the North Dakota Association of Career and Technical Education Administrator of the Year,” said Mayor Tom Ross. “That’s another victory for the Minot Public Schools to have someone like Pam on the team.”
