Seniors planning on not coming to school on Friday – make sure that you have a note from your parents excusing you. If you have missed too many days – you will need to make up the time.

Staff – Don’t forget that May 1st is the date that your contracts are due!

My name is Tyler Reddington and I am a business student at the University of South Dakota. I am also an executive officer for a student led organization called Beacom Billionaire Weekend that plans a fun, exciting, and educational event for prospective business students. The event gives students the chance to learn about the University and the Beacom School of Business while winning great prizes, watching a football game, and meeting some awesome people (including professors and current students)! This event is completely free and is a great chance to introduce students to their options after high school. Being a prospective student a few years ago and attending many college recruiting events, I wish I would have had the opportunity to be a part of such a great thing! The event is held next fall on on November 8th and 9th (housing provided) and a brochure is in the hall way.
