    BISMARCK, N.D. - Brig. Gen. Jackie Huber has been named the next deputy adjutant general for the North Dakota National Guard. She is the first female to hold this position in the North Dakota National Guard. She succeeds Brig. Gen. Robert Becklund who is retiring on October 1st.  

    "This is a great day for the North Dakota National Guard," said Gov. Doug Burgum. "General Huber is a highly qualified military officer with the leadership and military expertise that make her the right person to serve in this position and help lead the Soldiers, Airmen and civilians of the North Dakota National Guard."

    Huber, who is currently assigned as the assistant adjutant general-Army, was promoted to brigadier general in April. As the deputy, she would serve as acting adjutant general in his absence.  

    "Brig Gen Huber is a proven leader; she is the right person at the right time to serve in this important position," said Maj. Gen. Al Dohrmann, North Dakota adjutant general. "She has deployed twice, served at every level of command and been a key member of our headquarters' staff. Her dedication to our organization and passion for serving our Soldiers, Airmen, civilian employees, families and survivors, make her a great addition to our leadership team."

    A native of Bismarck, Huber, has served in the North Dakota Army National Guard since enlisting in 1989. Just a year later, in 1990, she deployed in support of Operations Desert Shield and Desert Storm with the Mandan-based 191st Military Police Company. Huber earned her commission as a second lieutenant through the University of North Dakota's Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) program in 1992. In 2003, she mobilized again for overseas in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom, serving as the personnel officer for the 142nd Engineer Battalion.

    During Huber's traditional Army National Guard career, she has held many key positions including command of the 129th Mobile Public Affairs Detachment, the 164th Engineer Battalion and the 164th Regional Training Institute. Most recently, she served as the operations officer for the Joint Force Headquarters' Domestic Operations Section.

    Besides her commands and other traditional military positions, Huber has worked as a full-time employee for the North Dakota National Guard since 1998. She held positions as a plans and operations specialist, director of the State Family Program and manager of the North Dakota National Guard's Army Guard Reserve (AGR) program. She's served as the director of the North Dakota National Guard's Manpower and Personnel for the past 10 years.

    A graduate of Bismarck's St. Mary High School, Huber holds a bachelor's degree in criminal justice from the University of North Dakota. She earned a master's degree in human resource management from the University of Mary and a master's degree in Strategic Studies from the U.S. Army War College.


    MINOT, ND - The title of Miss Norsk Høstfest passed to a new young lady Saturday when 21-year old Sidni Kast of Minot was crowned. Kast, who is of Norwegian and German heritage, is the daughter of Scott and Brenda Kast and grew up in Minot.

    A 2016 graduate of Minot High School and a 2019 graduate of Minot State University, Kast is currently applying for dental school. She'll put the $1,000 scholarship she received as Miss Norsk Høstfest to use there. Kast is familiar with crowns as she was crowned Homecoming Queen at both Minot High and Minot State.

    Now during Norsk Høstfest, September 25th-28th, and throughout the year, Kast will represent the Scandinavian festival. One of her goals is "to get the youth more aware of what Høstfest has to offer them." She hopes to speak in elementary school classrooms and to raise awareness among high school and college students.
