RAPID CITY ‐‐‐ South Dakota School of Mines Athletics Director Hugh Welsh has been named the 2008 Grand Marshal for the ‘M’ Week Homecoming parade which is slated for Saturday at 11 a.m.
“It is a great honor to be the Grand Marshal of the homecoming parade,” Welsh said. “My wife and I are really looking forward to all the homecoming activities ‐‐‐ in particular the coronation and bonfire on Thursday, the picnic at ‘M’ hill on Friday and obviously, and most importantly, the parade and victorious football game on Saturday.
‘M’ Week has a more than 90‐year history at the School of Mines. Students, staff and faculty hold the ‘M’ Week traditions close because the activities are something everyone on campus has in common. It's a time for students to celebrate being at the university and to carry on traditions started decades ago ‐ and, perhaps, to start a few new ones.
Homecoming will be capped off with the Dakota Athletic Conference football game against the Mayville State Comets. The Hardrockers faced the Comets twice last season, with both outings coming right down to the final play of the game. SD Mines carries a lot of momentum coming into the game after an impressive 30‐18 win last week over Dakota State as well as a mention in the NAIA National Rankings this week.
Followed the football game will be the Hardrocker Hall of Fame Induction Banquet in the Christensen Hall of Fame Room at the King Center. The banquet begins at 6 p.m.
