(6/20/14) The head of international education at U-W Stout has died in a traffic crash.
Dunn County authorities said 55-year-old Hong Rost drove across a centerline and collided with an oncoming semi-truck. The trucker was not hurt. The mishap occurred yesterday on County Trunk "D" in the Dunn County town of Tainter. Stout chancellor Charles Sorenson called Rost a "tremendous advocate for U-W Stout on the international stage." She became Stout's top international education official in 2010, after being the assistant director for a similar department at U-W La Crosse for 15 years.
