Van Vactor
Williams and Ree

Black Hills State University alums, Dennis Van Vactor and Williams and Ree, will perform with special guests Jerry Burton and Jim Roberts Tuesday, June 9 at 7:15 p.m. in the Clare and Josef Meier Recital Hall. Proceeds from this special concert will support the Sever and Ruth Eubank Scholarship program at BHSU.

Dr. Eubank and his wife were highly involved in education. Sever was a faculty member at BHSU for over 20 years and served as chairman of the social science department. Ruth taught for many years in Sturgis. Both were actively involved in their community and served the Democratic Party at the local, state, and national levels.

When Sever retired from BHSU in 1985 his replacement as chairman of the social science department instituted a scholarship in his name. In 2007 an endowment was established. The funds are used to award a scholarship to a BHSU student majoring in history, human services, political science, sociology, or social science.

Tickets for the concert are $30 per person and can be purchased at the BHSU Alumni Office, Woodburn Hall – room 114; the Bay Leaf Café and the Spearfish Arts Center Gallery, downtown Spearfish; or by contacting Dixie Richardson (Sever and Ruth’s daughter) at 605-717-3270 or dixierandr@rushmore.com.
