Sheila Stearns is a Montana legend. Her list of important and difficult jobs in higher education is unparalleled: Montana’s longest-serving commissioner of higher education, interim chancellor of MSU-Billings, President of Wayne State College in Nebraska, provost and chancellor of UM Western, and – of course – President of the University of Montana. Now, she’s been tapped to chair Montana’s congressional redistricting commission. Is there anything Sheila can't do?
