Dr. Stewart Bellman was a fixture on the BHSU campus during his 30 years as a professor of English. From 1966 to 1996, Dr. Bellman was a champion of both students and faculty, and he worked tirelessly for the advancement of both. He served as president of the South Dakota Council of Teachers of English, chaired the South Dakota Humanities Council, and founded the Dakota Writing Project. He served as faculty advisor to the Green Bowl Review, and in 1995 the Faculty Senate awarded Dr. Bellman the BHSU Distinguished Faculty Award.

After retirement in 1996, Bellman and his wife, Dr. Wanda Bellman maintained their devotion to BHSU. In 2001 they were honored as co-recipients of the BHSU Alumni Association Special Service Award.

Winners receive cash prizes, which are generously supported by Dr. Wanda Bellman and friends. For more information contact, Deaver Traywick, Writing Center director, Deaver.Traywick@BHSU.edu.
