|Dr. Thomas Flickema, president of Black Hills State University, presents the Young Alumni Achievement Award to Stephanie Hewitt, a 1995 BHSU graduate who now has her own law firm.
Hewitt, who attended BHSU on a volleyball scholarship, earned a business administration degree from BHSU and went on to earn a law degree. While at BHSU, Hewitt was involved in various organizations including the student senate and student ambassadors. She is also remembered for volleyball accomplishments including once serving seven aces in one match.
After working in the public defender’s office in Casper, Wyo., Hewitt began doing contract legal work for various law firms and for the government. She later accepted a position at the public defender’s office in Greeley, Colo.
“This was a return to doing the type of legal work that I love, criminal defense,” Hewitt says. Since then she has established her own law practice in which she specializes in criminal defense.
