Black Hills State University students in the College of Business created holiday centerpieces for the David Dorsett Healthcare Center in Spearfish recently. This is the third year students have completed the community service project.

Black Hills State University business majors completed their annual community service project just in time for the holiday season.

Students in GS100 Business Focus class taught by Dr. Barbara Looney, assistant professor of management at BHSU, created holiday centerpieces for residents of the David Dorsett Healthcare Center in Spearfish. The course is designed to familiarize freshmen, with business majors, with the benefits and potential of the seven business specialization options offered at the University. As part of the curriculum, upperclassmen who are members of the Business School Student Advisory Board at BHSU help the freshmen with a community service project each year.

This is the third year that students have created holiday center pieces for the David Dorsett Healthcare Center.

"A service project like this one reminds students of our connection to a larger community and builds awareness of older citizens who can no longer travel to our campus," Looney said. "It's always a pleasure to see the efficiency and joviality of the students working together for someone else."
