Rough Rider Award Winner Named

Posted: Updated:

Governor Dalrymple has named the 40th recipient of the North Dakota Theodore Roosevelt Rough Rider Award, the state's highest honor.
     Herman Stern was born in Germany in 1887 and died in 1980.
     He came to America at the age of 16 to work at his cousin's Straus Clothing Store in Casselton.
 In 1910, Stern became manager of the Valley City store and remained there for the next 70 years.
      Stern worried about his friends and family in Nazi Germany and made it his mission to bring them to U.S.
     With assistance from state leaders and the State Department, Stern made it possible for nearly 200 German Jews to escape the Holocaust.
     Dalrymple will present the award to Stern's family in Fargo on March 13th.
