Dana and LaDawn Dykhouse contributed an additional $150,000 and an anonymous donor contributed $125,000 to raise the total to $418,556 for the scholarship coffers.
Students with the Black Hills State University Investment Club worked under guidance of the BHSU Foundation to invest $25,000 of Foundation funds in long-term stocks, bonds, and mutual funds this spring. Each year, the Foundation will donate a portion of the investment profits to deserving Investment Club students in the form of scholarships. The remainder of the profits will remain with the Foundation.
