Not Quite a Millionaire!
February 15, 2013
Associate Professor John Loegering (’92 M.S. in wildlife science) may prefer to be recognized for his research on avian ecology and wildlife-habitat relationships, among other topics, but the University of Minnesota–Crookston faculty member gained notoriety as a contestant on a “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire” episode that aired last June. No, John didn’t win the million, but he made enough for a couple of nice trips to New York, a few Broadway shows, and a generous contribution to his son’s tuition fund. Plus, he got to meet Meredith Vieira. Not bad for a northwestern Minnesota boy!
