After 28 years of service at NCC in Ray, Mari Bergstrom will retire on June 30.
“I’m ready to retire, but there will be things I miss,” Bergstrom said. “The feeling of working here. You spend a lot of time here, it’s like your second home with the people you work with and the customers.”
Bergstrom was selected to work at NCC in 1989 out of a pool of 120 applicants who applied at the Job Service office in Williston.
There weren’t many openings at NCC back then, said Bergstrom. People who were able to get jobs didn’t leave, so opportunities to work at NCC were rare.
