The $1 million gift established the Dykhouse Family Athletic Scholarship Fund and was used to purchase new video scoreboards in the Young Center. According to Dana Dykhouse, prominent Sioux Falls businessman and president and chief executive officer of First PREMIER Bank, his family wants other student-athletes to have access to the same experiences and opportunities his daughter, Alana, has received as a student and a basketball player at BHSU “We have been blessed with the resources to give back,” Dana said. “We want other young people to be able to receive the wonderful experience that Alana has had at Black Hills State University.”
