GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) - Former U.S. Rep. Earl Pomeroy is getting an honorary doctor of letters degree from the University of North Dakota.

The UND alumnus will be honored during UND's spring commencement in the Alerus Center on May 14.

Pomeroy served as North Dakota's lone congressman for 18 years before losing to Rick Berg in his bid for a 10th term in the House. He has since joined a Washington, D.C., law firm.

Pomeroy earned a bachelor's degree in political science and a law degree from UND.
