Building a Legacy
"Dunwoody taught me more than technical skills; it taught be fundamentals like how to research," Ken said. "No other school teaches what Dunwoody taught: honesty and common sense."
Ken was raised in Spring Lake and Pengilly, Minn. He served in the U.S. Army in North Africa and Germany during World War II, and after the war worked at Sears & Roebuck and Raymond Trucking while attending Dunwoody and the Minnesota School of Business. He was president and owner of Bergstrom Construction (1950-1978), which built and developed many neighborhoods in the northern Minneapolis suburbs. He was also president and owner of Minn-Kota Excavating (1958-2001), a highway/heavy construction firm based in Brooklyn Park, Minn., that built and improved infrastructure in the upper Midwest and Texas.
