Gov. Daugaard returning to Convention

South Dakota Gov. Dennis Daugaard will join the more than 500 school board members and administrators set to attend this year’s ASBSD-SASD Convention.

Gov. Daugaard will provide the keynote address at the ASBSD and SASD Awards Banquet, which is scheduled for Thursday, August 10 at 12:30 p.m. in the Grand Ballroom of the Sioux Falls Convention Center.

“It’s an honor to have Gov. Daugaard join us at Convention for the second consecutive year,” ASBSD Executive Director Wade Pogany said. “I think it says a lot about the flourishing relationship the Governor and his office have with our state’s local, public education leaders.”

“We’re looking forward to having him join us to celebrate our exemplary school board members, administrators and community members.”

At the Banquet, ASBSD will honor the Outstanding School Board Member of the Year, School Board Award of Excellence recipient and the Community Service Award winner and SASD will present the SASD Outstanding Administrators Awards, Community Helping Hands Award, Little Red School House Award and recognize administrators who have served 30 or more years.
