Portraits: Jena Malquist

The countdown to Frisco, Texas, is on for North Dakota State University fans from Fargo, like 2008 graduate Jena Malquist. The interior design major used her talents to make a holiday “Go Bison” display that all football fans can appreciate at her home along Seventh Avenue North in Fargo. “I knew I wanted to put Christmas lights up and support the Bison, so I just drew it up and had a friend help me put it together. It took about six hours for us to create it,” Malquist said. Rope lights, a grid and a little work were the perfect combination for her first time hanging up Christmas lights. “A lot of people love it. They honk their horns when they drive by, and I’ve had people stop by and take pictures, so it has gotten some attention,” she said with a smile. That attention will be focused on the Bison when they face Sam Houston State in the title game. Malquist attended the Gopher game in Minneapolis and the playoff games at the Fargodome and will be watching from home this Saturday. “Let’s beat the Bearkats.”
