BOARD OF REGENTS PRESENT AWARD TO FALL RIVER STUDENTS ON BEHALF OF SDSM& T INSTITUTE OF INDUSTRIAL ENGINEERS CHAPTER
The South Dakota Board of Regents recently presented its Award for Academic Excellence to two Fall River County students who accepted the award on behalf of the Institute of Industrial Engineers ( IIE) student chapter at the South Dakota School of Mines & Technology ( SDSM& T). Paula Holmes of Hot Springs, past president, and Tanya Harrod of Edgemont, current president, accepted the award on behalf of the university’s IIE chapter. James O. Hansen, president of the South Dakota Board of Regents, presented the award to Holmes and Harrod, who are both industrial engineering majors at SDSM& T.
The IIE student chapter was honored for its promotion of the profession and for its university and community service projects. The IIE students have promoted the industrial engineering profession through participation in involvement fairs and outreach with local high schools. IIE chapter members gained valuable hands- on experience through participation in a variety of simulation contests and regional and national conferences. Dr. Carter Kerk, Assistant Professor of Industrial Engineering, serves as advisor to the IIE chapter.
