    Montanan State University recently published an interesting feature, spotlighting several small town students and the impact they have on our state's future. Montana prides itself in raising citizens known for their sense of community and hard work ethic. This article exemplifies this pride:

    From the time that Montana State first began more than a century ago, students from small towns have been at the heart of its student body. And, still it is so.

    Last school year (2010-11) 5,025 MSU undergraduates identified that they graduated from Montana high schools, according to MSU's Office of Planning and Analysis. Of those, 1,001 students, or about one-fifth, identified that they graduated from a Montana high school with 50 or fewer graduates. Half of those, or 511 students, said they were in a graduating class with 25 or fewer graduates.

    Rooted in the remote corners of Montana or the tiny towns between them, the road that brought these students to Bozeman carried them far from home and a long way from the familiar.

    Read their unique stories in the feature, Heart of Montana, by Evelyn Boswell.
