Monday I was able to touch the future!
How you ask? Well, I shook the hands of 200 of our top academic graduating high school seniors in the State of South Dakota.
It was a thrill to share this day with the many students, parents, educators and special guests in attendance at the 2013 Academic Excellence Banquet.
To see pictures from the event, visit the ASBSD Facebook.
This year marked the 23rd year that ASBSD, in cooperation with the Governor’s office, School Administrators of South Dakota and the Department of Education and event sponsors the S.D. Community Foundation and Citibank, joined together to recognize the top one percent of graduating seniors from our state’s public, private and tribal schools.
As school board members, I encourage you to personally congratulate the student from your district. Download the honoree list to find the student(s) from your district.
These students, with their talents and skills, represent the next generation of leaders and the future of our state.
