Volunteerism, commitment and hard work are keys to success for Tiffany Meidinger, the coveted Spirit of BH Award winner for 1998.
The Spirit of BH Award is presented to a Black Hills State University student who has made significant contributions that reflect favorably on the university and larger community.
Voted as last year's Outstanding Student Leader, Meidinger was a logical choice for this year's award. She has been active as a student ambassador and served as that organization's vice president. She has been a member of the Student Activities Committee and served as president. She has served as Swarm Day coordinator, New Student Days group leader, and as a volunteer in the university's institutional advancement office. While holding these positions she was a college work-study student in several different offices.
Near the time she received the Spirit of BH Award, she received notification that she had been selected as Student Employee of the Year for both the university and the State of South Dakota, presented by the Midwest Association of Student Employment administrators.
Meidinger, a senior sociology major with a minor in computer applications, is originally from Miles City, Mont. She recently accepted a management information trainee position with an excellent compensation package from the Ralston Purina Corp. in the Quad City area of Iowa.
