USD President’s Speech Focuses On Student Assistance | Community

VERMILLION — University of South Dakota President Sheila Gestring reminded her audience during her State of the University address Thursday that “all it takes is one second for someone’s life to change at USD.”

As she finished that statement, a photo of the South Dakota Coyotes football team’s dramatic win over the South Dakota State University Jackrabbits last year flashed on the screen above the Aalfs Auditorium stage, where Gestring spoke before a gathering of university faculty and staff.
