The mother of former UND student body president Adam Baker says it will be "all in all kind of bittersweet" accepting her son's posthumous master's degree at UND's spring commencement Saturday afternoon.


Parents Rondha and Dennis Terhark, Baker's siblings and girlfriend have come to Grand Forks to accept the master's in aviation Baker earned before his death. He died in December after another man punched him outside a bar in St. Michael, Minn., last May.
