Description BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION: A native of western North Dakota, Lynne Ebner attended the University of North Dakota and received a degree in nursing. After teaching nursing at UND and at hospital training programs, she joined the staff of Moorhead State University in 1978 as the college health nurse. In 1985 she became director of the university's Hendrix Health Center, and in 1989 she earned a master's degree in public and human services administration. Ebner retired from the university in the spring of 1997 with plans to divide her time between homes in Pelican Lake, Minnesota, and Scottsdale, Arizona, and to begin a second career as a parish nurse. SUBJECTS DISCUSSED: Ebner discusses the Red Cross shelter established at Moorhead State University during the 1997 flood. The shelter was used for several weeks by people who left Grand Forks, North Dakota, and East Grand Forks, Minnesota, when those cities were flooded. Ebner describes the shelter's operation and various issues that university personnel dealt with in connection with the shelter. She also provides information on the efforts of faculty, staff and students at the university in fighting the flood in the Fargo, North Dakota-Moorhead area.
