Small Town Stories

Kevin Wallevand has been a Reporter at WDAY-TV since 1983. He is a native of Vining, Minnesota in Otter Tail County. His series and documentary work have brought him to Africa, Vietnam, Haiti, Kosovo, South America, Mongolia, Juarez, Mexico and the Middle East. He is a multiple Emmy and national Edward R. Murrow award recipient.

Wallevand will speak on “Small Town Stories” at Minnesota State Community and Technical College on Wednesday, April 10. The event is free and open to the public in Legacy Hall at the college in Fergus Falls.

Funded in part through an endowment by Otter Tail Power Company in 1991, the Lecture honors the late Bob Bigwood, who served as Otter Tail Power president and chairman of the board. Bigwood’s leadership in civic affairs at Otter Tail Power and at M State Fergus Falls campus as a founder of both the College and Fergus Area College Foundation sets the standard for the Lecture’s continuing recognition of engaged leaders and citizen participation.
