1) The famous Frenchman is Napoleon Bonaparte so it is Dr. Napoleon Espejo who loves to play guitar

2) Don’t know where the Easter bunny is from but our only speaker from Indiana is Bernadette “Bunny” Rodak whose name can be found as author on numerous Hematology textbooks.

3) Since a monarchy has a king it could be no other than Dr. Thomas King who calls Worchester, MA. home.

4) Tristin Frank is at home on a stage as he is in the lab. He had the lead role in Casselton, ND’s production of Joseph and the Technicolor Dreamcoat as well as others.

5) This “Big Dance” has nothing to do with dancing in a ballroom but everything to do with “dancing” on a basketball court. This is NDSU’s second trip to the “Big Dance” tourney and the NDSU BBall head coach is Saul Phillips, husband to Nicole.
