Our Voice: Buster Olney great choice for NSU commencement

Farm Forum

Congratulations to the Northern State University class of 2013.

They will have a fine commencement speaker May 4 in Buster Olney, ESPN reporter and the author of “How Lucky You Can Be,” a biography of former Northern men’s basketball coach Don Meyer.

The speaker is a coup for Northern. He’s a nationally recognized figure who has become something of an honorary hometown boy here in the Aberdeen area, thanks to his frequent visits over the past few years.

Not to put too much pressure on Olney, but we expect students will hear an inspiring and entertaining message when they turn the tassel on their college careers.
