Community editor Sydney Mook reports on a specialized chair, developed by a group of UND students, that will be helping challenged kids at the Anne Carlsen Center in Grand Forks.

The chair, for kids between the ages of 8 months and 3 years, was delivered to the Anne Carlsen Center, a nonprofit organization providing individuals with development disabilities or delays with services and supports, on Monday, May 18.

“This is a nice opportunity to normalize all types of mobility,” Alicia Bullinger, with the Anne Carlsen Center, said. “It’s not about how you get around but that you have that opportunity to do so.”

Look for reporter Pamela Knudson's profiles of the seven candidates running for the five openings on the Grand Forks School Board -- one two-year position and four four-year positions. Four of the candidates are incumbents.

Journalist Hannah Shirley will be reporting on a UND epidemiology student, who is on one of three four-person teams conducting mass testing within the North Dakota Penitentiary.
