Athena KildegaardWhy have you chosen to serve on the CURE Board?

I like the Minnesota River, and I am eager to advocate for it.

Tell us about your vocation/profession. 

I teach writing at the University of Minnesota, Morris, and I write poetry. Some days I despair of humans ever communicating successfully, and some days I rejoice when we do!

I received my M.A.T. from the  University of Chicago and a B.A. from Gustavus Adolphus College.

Fun Fact(s):

After watching the movie “Monsoon Wedding,” I came home and ate marigolds. They’re surprisingly peppery!

Athena Kildegaard was elected to the CURE Board of Directors in 2015.
