We kicked off 2020 with a celebration of excellence in South Dakota.
Monday, January 6 at the Joy Center in Spearfish we recognized 8 individuals and organizations for the Acts of Excellence. The day started with South Dakota Public Broadcasting interviewing 4 of the recipients, Gloria Riherd, Joe Smith, Laurie Stenberg Nichols, and Alexandra Doyle on their In the Moment segment.
