2000 S. D. S. M. T. ALL SCHOOL REUNION GRAND CONCLUSION TOMORROW
The final day of Tech’s All- School Reunion includes the tradition of climbing M- Hill and placing the Reunion plaque on the Hill scheduled from 9: 30 - 11: 00 AM. This event draws hundreds of SDSM& T’s faithful alumni out for the ascent. It follows an early morning pancake breakfast staged and coordinated by alumnus Earl Dailey ( ME51) and his wife Arletta of Rapid City at the Memorial Park band shell from 6: 00- 9: 00 AM.
A challenge each Reunion has been accessing M- Hill across Rapid Creek. This year the Mines engineers are receiving assistance from The South Dakota Army National Guard. The South Dakota Army National Guard in coordination with the 109th Engineer Battalion, Sturgis, SD has been requested to construct a foot bridge across Rapid Creek in support of the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology Alumni Reunion on 8 July. Members of the 235th Military Police Company of Rapid City and Custer and the Organizational Maintenance Shop # 2 of Rapid City have volunteered for this challenge to train and refresh their general engineering skills by designing, fabricating, and constructing the foot bridge.
The SDSM& T Alumni Association Reunion Committee members coordinated with the Guard and the City of Rapid City to install this temporary bridge. Reunion activities conclude Saturday evening with the Reunion Banquet at the Ramkota Hotel and Convention Center. The SDSM& T Foundation will announce the outcome of the Vision 2000 Campaign between 7: 45 and 8: 30 PM.
