North Dakota State University students Alex Koppy, a Mandan native, Stephen Kessler and Brandon Millar have been named 2013 Yell Leaders. They will work with the NDSU Cheer Team and Gold Star Marching Band to engage fans and create a festive atmosphere at home football games.

Koppy, a sophomore at NDSU, is majoring in mathematics and mathematics education.

Yell Leaders are selected by Bison Ambassadors, NDSU Athletics and the NDSU Alumni Association through an interview process. They are judged on enthusiasm, Bison Pride and voice.

“A Yell Leader is someone who embodies the Bison spirit and is an outstanding member of the NDSU community,” said Stephanie Maier, director of programs and student engagement for the NDSU Alumni Association.

Koppy will receive a scholarship from the NDSU Alumni Association for his service.
