With more than 25 years of education experience, Sandy Klarenbeek’s list of accomplishments is extensive. The Black Hills State University health professor can now add 2012 South Dakota Association Health,Physical Education, Recreation and Dance (SDAHPERD) College Teacher of the year to that list.
Barbara Zwetzig, director for the Center for Business, Entrepreneurship & Tourism at Black Hills State University, recently received training and certification as a coach for Wendy Kennedy’s “So What? Who Cares? Why You?” methodology, a proven system to find the business value inside innovation.
The garden located at the southwest corner of Black Hills State University’s Life Sciences Laboratory is different from others in the area. BHSU professors Dr. Ben VanEe and Dr. Dan Asunskis hope that will change. The two science professors worked throughout the summer developing a native plant ethnobotanical garden on campus. Native plant landscaping, including Buffalo grass, is a part of the Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) for the University’s new Life Sciences Laboratory which opened in February. The David B. Miller Yellow Jacket Student Union is also a LEED certified building. Both buildings are part of BHSU’s commitment to sustainability.
