Leadership South Dakota is excited to announce the 43 students who will take part in this year’s program. With a record number of applications, this group of South Dakotans will kick off the 9th class when they meet in Pierre this Fall. The comprehensive, statewide program has a mission to engage citizens from across the state and provides participants with the background, unique experiences and insights necessary to be successful in leadership positions.
In Miller, South Dakota, our youth are more than our future – they are our present leaders. We don't believe in waiting until our youth are grown to involve them in the community. Instead, On Hand Development (OHD) looks for ways to involve them in our community planning and growth today. That is why OHD sponsors the youth to attend the Rural X Summit. Every year, Miller’s youth leaders are able to hear ideas and use them to inspire annual projects at home.
