NDSU students help lead Giving Hearts Day projects

Four NDSU students are among 10 talented students from North Dakota, South Dakota and Minnesota who were selected for the inaugural Digital Impact Fellowship for Giving Hearts Day 2021. Powered by the Nice Center at NDSU, The High Impact Institute and Dakota Medical Foundation, the students partnered with nonprofits throughout the region to help maximize their digital reach for the Giving Hearts Day event.

The fellows are:

• Cassandra Tweed, a junior at NDSU

• Dylan Demers, a freshman at Fargo North High School

• Emma Olson, a sophomore at Valley City High School 

• Grace Lange, a junior at NDSU

• Haison Nguyen, a sophomore at the University of St. Thomas

• Kendra Hassan, a senior at NDSU

• Lorena Diaz-Martinez, a senior at South Dakota State University 

• Skyler Manney, a freshman at NDSU

• Skyler Strand, a freshman at the University of North Dakota

• Tobias Zikmund, a junior at Minnesota State University Moorhead 

“Giving Hearts Day provides a platform for nonprofits to connect with donors and volunteers to propel their missions to even greater impact. The fellows provided an extraordinary boost to help amplify the message and increase support for participating nonprofits and those they serve at a critical time,” said Scott Holdman, chief transformation officer at The High Impact Institute.

“The fellowship provided students with high-impact projects to add to their creative portfolios and connected them to a community of peers working to make the world a better place. We’re proud of the work they’ve done and fortunate to have their incredible talent in our region,” said Kodee Furst, programs manager at the Nice Center at NDSU.

The 10 fellows are scheduled to showcase their digital impact work and share their experiences during a Digital Impact Showcase. The showcase is set to take place online Thursday, Feb. 25, at 3 p.m. Central Standard Time. Tickets are free and available on Eventbrite.
