More than 130 golfers participated in the 19th Annual Mark Larscheid Memorial Golf Tournament July 6 at the Spearfish Canyon Golf Club, benefiting the track and field program at Black Hills State University. This year’s scholarship recipient was Allan McDonnell, a high jumper from Wall majoring in exercise science.
Mark your calendars for the stellar event of the summer season! The fifth Annual Black Hills State University Scholarship Gala, “Helping our Students Shoot for the Moon and Land among the Stars,” will take place on a starry Saturday evening, Aug. 24, at the Joy Center at BHSU in Spearfish.
Plans to renovate the E.Y. Berry Library-Learning Center at Black Hills State University are moving forward with the first donation from a local corporation. Black Hills Energy presented a $25,000 check to BHSU earlier this month.
Scholarships are now available for Camp Invention, a week-long summer academic program will be hosted on the BHSU campus in Spearfish June 10-14. The John T. Vucurevich Foundation has awarded $5,000 and the Spearfish Community Foundation has awarded $1,000 for scholarships for children whose families qualify for free and reduced lunch programs or need financial support to attend.
The children of Ranny and Helen Duncan say Black Hills State University was a big part of their family while growing up. When looking for a way to honor their parents, establishing a scholarship at their favorite university was the perfect fit. The Ranny and Helen Duncan Athletic Scholarship will be awarded for the first time this fall.
