Kim Nida, assistant director of financial aid and Veteran’s Affairs certifying official at Black Hills State University, and her daughters, Claire, 4, and Reese, 2, are among the many BHSU community members who don their green and gold BHSU apparel every Friday to support the “Jeans for Jackets” scholarship fundraising program.
BHSU started the casual wear fundraising program this summer as a way to raise scholarship funds while encouraging BHSU pride.
Kim says it’s been a fun way to talk with her daughters about charity and “how we can help others.” When Claire wondered why her mother was wearing jeans to work, Kim explained the $1 donation she makes each week supports the scholarship fundraiser. Claire, who now looks forward to wearing her BHSU apparel on Friday, suggested that they each contribute a dollar to the fund. Every Friday, the girls wear their green and gold apparel to daycare and Kim now contributes $3 to the scholarship fund.
