Mathisen earns volunteer award

The Bemidji Pioneer, Paul Bunyan Broadcasting, Ken K. Thompson and the United Way recognize "Someone Special Volunteers" who have made significant contributions to the community.

Headwaters Science Center has nominated John Mathisen as a Someone Special Volunteer.

Mathisen has been active with the Headwaters Science Center since it first began about 18 years ago. He has supported the Science Center in many ways: as docent, member and donor, provider of technical support, photographer, animal researcher and as a very reliable webmaster.

He has now provided Headwaters Science Center with its own blog and maintains its Facebook account. Mathisen has attended meetings on behalf of the center and has always come to its aid whenever and wherever needed.

Headwaters Science Center provides science-based exhibits, programs, activities and events for residents and tourists of northern Minnesota.
