Black Hills State University sophomore Tyler Prue, business administration from Pierre, is the recipient of the 2011 Kevin Whirlwind Horse Memorial Scholarship.

Each year during the Kevin Whirlwind Horse Memorial Run/Walk, a $500 scholarship is presented to a BHSU American Indian sophomore who demonstrates outstanding academic ability and leadership skills.

Whirlwind Horse was an active and respected student leader, and the memorial run/walk fundraiser serves to recognize the achievements of students who are working to improve their campus, community, and world through the active pursuit of higher education.

The Kevin Whirlwind Horse Memorial Run is sponsored each year on the Saturday of the Lakota Omniciye spring powwow in memory of Kevin Whirlwind Horse, a former BHSU student who was killed in a car accident in 1984. Marla Herman, a fellow student and member of Lakota Omniciye, organized the first memorial run in the spring of 1985, and it has been held every year since.
