AN HONOR WELL WORTH MENTIONING: 2017 Inductees Speak at Sioux Falls Rotary

Hundreds of people have been inducted into the South Dakota Hall of Fame.  But, do you know what it takes to become a member of the South Dakota Hall of Fame?  What is the selection process?  And, what is the mission of the Hall of Fame?  Miles Beacom, incoming Hall of Fame Board Chair will provide some background on this 43 year-old organization when he speaks to the Downtown Sioux Falls Rotary Club on Monday, July 31, 2017 at the Holiday Inn City Centre.


Each year ten extraordinary people are inducted into the prestigious South Dakota Hall of Fame. This year’s class is an exceptionally talented group with Stephanie Herseth Sandlin, Jeff  Scherschligt, Jeff Broin, Kelby Krabbenhoft and Ernest Carlsen from the Sioux Falls community.  Your reporter can inform and enlighten your audience about this statewide organization and the history-making and preservation service it performs for our state with each of its selections.
