Erica Littlewolf, a senior from Busby, Mont., was honored with the Black Hills State University Alumni Association Spirit of BH award at the annual student volunteer awards banquet.
Littlewolf was chosen to receive the esteemed Spirit of BH award for her activities both on and off campus. Littlewolf, who was chosen by her peers as homecoming queen this fall, was cited for her ability to successfully manage academics, volunteerism, extra-curricular activities and work. The BHSU senior with a double major in psychology and American Indian Studies maintains a 3.1 grade point average.
Littlewolf is involved in several campus organizations, serves as a member of the retention task force, serves as a university peer educator, and has volunteered through Habitat for Humanity the last two years to help rebuild houses during spring break. Her community involvements include volunteering with the Artemis House, the American Cancer Society, Relay for Life, and as a vacation Bible school teacher.
“I have developed a deep sense of respect and admiration for her achievements, her campus involvement, and above all, her leadership. I cannot think of another student who represents the spirit of Black Hills State University better than Erica Littlewolf,” said one of the nominators for the award.
