Even though they have quite the drive from their Conrad farm, Jim and Chris Bjelland wouldn’t miss cheering on their Griz football team in person.
In fact, Bjelland has attended 44 consecutive Griz-Cat games.
The Bjellands will be presented with a Community Service Award at Saturdays Griz-Cat contest in Missoula. They will be recognized during the game.
The award recognizes support of and service to The University of Montana and its athletic programs, as well as service to hometown communities. It is presented by UM and coordinated by the Office of Alumni Relations, Grizzly Athletics and the Grizzly Scholarship Association.
