What that makes this city great is the people who live there--they are humble optimists who find good in all things, especially each other, and they are mostly supportive people. Like many women who grew up there, I left Bismarck upon marrying when I was 21. I continue to visit family there on special occasions. The most valuable part of my growing up in Bismarck was the quality of life for my family despite a low income, harsh winters, and having to walk far to school. I'm pleased to see, for the sake of their children, that this major quality--good family life--is still valued by young parents now living there.
Apparently, this good family life concept is still fostered or supported by the city's education systems. I knew I had a great education at St. Mary's, but not how great until I returned to complete a college degree after my children were grown. I received a degree from a big 10 university in two years, then a masters in another year, and shortly after that I was invited into a fully paid doctoral program to work as an editor for a professor! I thought, who? me? Humility through hard work is a major attribute learned and valued in family living in Bismarck, ND.
