Andrea Farr, a senior music major from Colstrip, Mont., received the 2004 Spirit of BH award from the Black Hills State University Alumni Association.
Farr, who also received recognition from her peers when she was selected as homecoming queen in the fall of 2003, was cited for her ongoing participation in a variety of campus and community organizations. Farr is an active member of Lakota Omniciye, co-president of the campus Habitat for Humanity Club, and a regular volunteer for the Artemis House and Humane Society. She has also been active in choir, band and theatre performances on campus throughout her years as a student. Farr, who graduated in the spring of 2004, served as a New Student Days leader for three years and was a member of Campus Ventures, the UP team, and Bacchus Peer Educators.
According to one nominator, Farr is an ideal recipient for the Spirit of BH award because, even with all of her activities and volunteer work, she has been able to maintain a 3.55 grade point average “which shows her true dedication and her commitment to making the most of her college career at BHSU.”
