Mike Gibbens marks 15th anniversary as NDAD ambassador
NDAD recently marked the 15th anniversary of Mike Gibbens' official service role as ambassador for the longtime charitable nonprofit. 

Mike is the same man who, as a child with cerebral palsy, helped inspire his parents to found the North Dakota Association for the Disabled, which officially gained its corporation papers in 1975.
