Like the Energizer Bunny of commercial fame, George and Joanne Sprenger keep going and going. This local couple is involved in many activities.
Born in 1939, George was raised on a small dairy farm in Plainview, Minn., where his father taught him carpentry, electricity, and other key skills that he continues to practice and share. He graduated from high school in 1957, enrolled at Winona State and proceeded to the University of North Dakota in Grand Forks, where he earned his master of science degree in 1968.
