7/22 Replacing the "research project" with the "research job" for some UMD students this summer

Brett Groehler/University of Minnesota Duluth

One of the best ways to know if you want to do a particular thing with your life is to do the thing, full time, for a while.  That's why seven UMD students took a pass on going home, summer jobs or the beach and opted instead for the BURST: Biology Undergraduate Research in Science and Technology program, a 40-plus-hour-a-week-for-10-week program that lets them focus on their chosen topic and their research for that time.

Lisa Johnson started her broadcast career anchoring the television news at her high school and spinning country music at KWWK/KOLM Radio in Rochester, Minnesota. She was a reporter and news anchor at KTHI in Fargo, ND (not to mention the host of a children's program called "Lisa's Lane") and a radio reporter and anchor in Moorhead, Bismarck, Wahpeton and Fergus Falls.Since 1991, she has hosted Northland Morning on KUMD. One of the best parts of her job includes "paying it forward" by mentoring upcoming journalists and broadcasters on the student news team that helps produce Northland Morning. She also loves introducing the different people she meets in her job to one another, helping to forge new "community connections" and partnerships.Lisa has amassed a book collection weighing over two tons, and she enjoys reading, photography, volunteering with Animal Allies Humane Society and fantasizing about farmland. She goes to bed at 8pm, long before her daughter, two cats, or three dogs.
