Scott Ferderer, a native of Bismarck, North Dakota, and a senior at MSU, plans to graduate in December 2002 with a BS in computer science information systems. Scotts minor area of study coincides nicely with his major: electronic engineering technology.
Previously, Scott earned an associate of applied science degree in electronic technology from Bismarck State College.
Web design, long a passion for Scott, serves him well as he works on the Techniques online team. In the past four years, Scott created multiple Web sites and started a small business in which he maintains and builds Web sites for clients.
Scott, the vice president for the MSU student chapter of STC, currently works at building the chapter Web site.
In his free time, Scott enjoys repairing computers, learning new software programs, and visiting family and friends. He also enjoys the Cartoon Channel, watching as much of Dexters Laboratory as humanly possible.
Carrie Hendrickson looks forward to graduation in the summer of 2002 with a BS in technical communication. Known for her humorous personality, resourceful approach to generating articles, and creative technical ability, Carrie contributes articles and serves as a layout editor for Techniques. Carrie also serves as secretary for the MSU chapter of STC.
Carrie worked for fifteen years as the business manager/accountant for North Valley Vo-Tech Center in Grafton, ND. Since overseeing a million dollar plus budget, Carrie understands the importance of careful, detailed work and appreciates detail in well-crafted documentation.
She taught self-paced computer courses covering numerous software packages through the local community education program. Her current interests involve learning and working with adaptive technology particularly in the field of voiceactivated software.
In her spare time, Carrie enjoys watching vintage movies with her husband John.
