Few have a history of river advocacy in Minot as long as Joe and Heidi Super. When not teaching high school students river science or steering Minot State’s Biology Club, they’re often found enjoying our river playground off the shoreline of their Green Valley neighborhood home.
Dr. Heidi Super
Dr. Super received a B. A. in biology from Carroll College, Helena MT in 1988. She then held a Graduate Research Fellowship at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory for one year (1988-1989) before going to the University of Chicago where she earned a Ph.D. in Molecular Genetics and Cell Biology in 1995. Dr. Super joined the Biology faculty at Minot State in 1999 after completing a three-year position as a Post-Doctoral Research Associate at the National Institutes of Health, Rocky Mountain Labs in Hamilton, MT.
