About Charles Herman

Charles "Chuck" Herman, the UGPTI's first John M. Agrey Award winner in 1996, was a businessman and worked for the Greater North Dakota Association and served three terms in the ND House of Representatives. He was instrumental in creating the legislation establishing the UGPTI. His knowledge of and involvement in the legislative process and his relationships with ND legislators and staff members were essential in getting the legislation passed.

Chuck was born in 1926 in Ada, MN, where he grew up and attended High School. He attended his senior year and graduated from high school in Pasadena, CA. He received degrees from Hamline University, Concordia College, and his masters from NDSU.

After his death in 2010, his family gifted $50,000 to NDSU to endow a transportation scholarship in his memory.
