Former U.S. President Bill Clinton is scheduled to be at Black Hills State University Friday, May 30. 

The nation’s 42nd president will be speaking in the David B. Miller Yellow Jacket Student Union Jacket Legacy room. Doors will open at 12 noon for the first-come-first-serve event which is free and open to the public. Clinton is stopping at BHSU as he continues to campaign for his wife’s, Sen. Hillary Clinton, presidential bid.

The Clinton campaign has vowed to have a strong presence in South Dakota leading up to the June 3 primary election.

“It’s exciting for the Black Hills State University community and the Spearfish community to have the opportunity to hear from a former U.S. President,” Dr. Kay Schallenkamp, BHSU president, says. 

This is believed to be the first time a former U.S. President has visited the BHSU campus. During the late 80s, several presidential hopefuls, Gary Hart, Bob Dole, and George H. W. Bush, campaigned at BHSU. Bush was elected president 11 months later.
