Currently two BHSU student technicians are assisting the Sanford Lab with their increasing information technology needs. Cole Nicholas, Business Administration major from Colome, and James Netzer, mass communication major from Sidney, Mont., are working for BHSU as technicians as well as working two days a week at Sanford Lab.
