contributes to scholarship fund following annual golf tournament
Mary Larscheid-Christensen presents
Steve Meeker, vice president for institutional advancement and athletic
director, with a check for the Mark Larscheid Memorial Scholarship. The
money which was raised at the annual memorial golf tournament increases
the amount of the scholarship fund to over $15,000.
Following a golf tournament held in his memory, the family and
friends of Mark Larscheid donated an additional $3,100 to a scholarship
through the Black Hills State University Yellow Jacket Foundation. The
fund total is now $15,671.
To celebrate Larscheid’s life and preserve his memory, his family
sponsors an annual memorial golf tournament which includes a silent
auction, dinner and dance. The proceeds are contributed to a track
athlete scholarship fund at BHSU in Larscheid’s name.
Larscheid, a former teacher and coach at Williams Middle School in
Sturgis for 27 years, died in an automobile accident in 2000. He also
taught and coached in Spearfish and Wall.
He was an outgoing, caring, and kind person who loved his family and
athletics. He was an outstanding high school and collegiate athlete who
still holds the South Dakota State High School record for the 110-yard
high hurdles at 14.1, a record he set in 1969. Larscheid graduated from
BHSU with a degree in physical education in 1973. He competed in
football and track for the Yellow Jackets.
A Mark Larscheid Golf Tournament is being planned for next summer.
The gifted endowment scholarship is presented to a South Dakota male
or female track athlete who maintains a 2.0 grade-point average.
Contributions to the Larscheid Scholarship fund may be sent to Steve
Meeker, Black Hills State University, Unit 9673, 1200 University,
