Broadcaster Press 7 August 29, 2017 www.broadcasteronline.com Beacom College At DSU A Making Good On America’s Step Forward For South Dakota Commitment To Our Veterans By Gov. Dennis Daugaard South Dakota is full of “hidden gems.” One secret we’ve kept too well is Dakota State University. DSU is one of the nation’s leading schools for cybersecurity, and it is rising to a new level of excellence. Earlier this month, I went to Madison for a ribbon cutting for the Beacom Institute of Technology. This new facility at Dakota State was built through the generosity of Miles and Lisa Beacom and T. Denny Sanford, and it will house several of DSU’s cutting-edge programs. The day brought another surprise, however: a second gift from Sanford and the Beacoms. Their surprise $30 million pledge will newly name the Beacom College of Computer and Cyber Sciences. The state will contribute an additional $10 million, and DSU has agreed to leverage the gift for $20 million in federal support. All told, this will create a $60 million impact on DSU. The Beacom College will build on Dakota State’s record of excellence. DSU already holds four prestigious Center of Excellence designations from the National Security Agency and the Department of Homeland Security, including the most technical (for Cyber Operations) and the most prestigious (as a Cyber Defense Consultative Regional Resource Center). Dakota State is one of only four universities in the nation to have this latter distinction – and one of only two universities in the country with four or more designations. Now Beacom College at DSU will rise to a new level. With this new gift, the university will break ground next spring on “MadLabs,” a Sensitive Compartmented Informa- tion Facility that allows students and faculty to work upon confidential and proprietary information without leaving campus. This significant gift will also fund student scholarships and support for additional faculty and staff. South Dakota’s young people, and their parents, need to know that they do not need to leave our state to receive a world-class education in the high-need, high-tech fields of computer and cyber sciences. U.S. Sen. Mike Rounds, who is the chairman of the Senate Armed Services Subcommittee on Cybersecurity, played an important role in planning for last Sunday’s surprise. As he explained that day, cybersecurity is perhaps the most significant national security issue facing our nation, and these skills are in high demand in government and in the private sector. The Beacom College will create new opportunities for our young people, and new employers will be attracted to hire employees with old-fashioned South Dakota work ethic combined with world-class cybersecurity training. It was over 30 years ago that Gov. Bill Janklow proposed converting Dakota State from a normal school to a “computer school.” It was a visionary change to make in 1984. Now, the Beacom College of Computer and Cyber Sciences is taking another huge step forward, thanks to the vision of Denny Sanford, Miles and Lisa Beacom, Dakota State President José-Marie Griffiths, and many other South Dakota leaders. It’s time we set aside our South Dakota humility, and express our pride about this “hidden gem.” SD National Guard Employee Earns Sec. Of The Army Award RAPID CITY, S.D. - The South Dakota Army National Guard's energy manager, Michael Haltiner, received the 2017 Secretary of the Army Energy Award under the category of Individual Exceptional Performance at the Federal Energy Exchange Conference in Tampa, Florida, Aug. 17. Haltiner, who started leading energy conservation for the SDARNG in 2009, has completed numerous projects impacting energy reduction levels in South Dakota. "Mr. Haltiner leads our energy conservation efforts and is personally involved in all projects as well as monitoring energy consumption for our facilities on a monthly basis," said Col. Scott Petrik, construction and facilities management officer. "His efforts over the years have consistently made South Dakota one the nation's top performer's in energy conservation." Projects include passive heating solar walls, automated controls and lighting, motion sensors, redesign and replacement of HVAC and boiler systems and LED lighting. These projects have resulted in annual energy savings of $248,931, resulting in more than one million dollars in savings to date. Haltiner is always involved in the design process of the SDARNG's sustainabilityfocused buildings. "The federal government is the largest U.S. consumer of energy," Petrik said. "The president published an executive order mandating a 30 percent energy consumption reduction over a 10-year period. The South Dakota Army National Guard was one of two states in the nation to meet the requirements of the presidential executive order." In addition to energy savings, energy conservation efforts has brought additional funding for energy projects to the SDARNG. "Two years ago we received $120 thousand for energy projects; this year we received over $500 thousand," Petrik said. The National Guard Bureau rewards states for meeting the presidential executive order energy conservation requirements. "Knowing that energy conservation is saving money to spend on Soldier training and helping our organization maintain its readiness, along with saving our natural resources, is the most rewarding part of the job," Haltiner said. Haltiner said a number of factors are responsible for the energy conservation success the SDARNG has from energy consumption awareness to support from leadership. "We've made incredible progress over the years I've been working for the South Dakota Army National Guard," he said. "It's an all-around team effort and I want to thank the SDARNG team for helping make this award possible." 58 Acres of Yankton County Land Wednesday, September 6th, 9:30 a.m. Located: 3 miles West of Wal-Mart on SD Highway 50, 1 mile North on 437th Ave Legal: The SW1/4 of SW1/4 and S1/2 NW1/4, SW1/4 in Section 27-94-56 Yankton County, SD.

John Thune Among the highlights of traveling across South Dakota is visiting with the many veterans who have helped shape our communities and embody our state’s selfless and giving culture. From one generation to the next, these patriots have defended our freedom and liberty, and we owe them a big debt of gratitude. In addition to giving thanks, we must also ensure they receive the care and benefits they have earned through their service and sacrifice, which is why I’m glad Congress recently passed, and the president signed, several important pieces of legislation that make good on that promise. Most recently, the president signed the Veterans Appeals Improvement and Modernization Act of 2017. I was proud to cosponsor this legislation, which will overhaul the Department of Veterans Affairs’ (VA) current appeals process so it can process claims faster and provide additional transparency and safeguards for veterans, their families, and survivors. The president also recently signed the “Forever GI Bill,” which will grant full GI Bill benefits to Purple Heart recipients, regardless of their total length of service. The bill will also eliminate the arbitrary 15-year window in which veterans were required to use their benefits after leaving the military and expand educational opportunities for veterans enrolling in high-tech courses like coding boot camps. Broadening the reach of this invaluable education benefit will help ensure that our veterans can build from their military talents and embark on new opportunities as they return to the civilian world. The VA Choice and Quality Employment Act of 2017, which makes a significant investment in the Veterans Choice program, also became law in early August. These additional funds will allow veterans to get timely care in their own communities, rather than enduring long wait times and traveling long distances for care. The bill also authorizes leases for VA medical facilities, including a replacement Community Based Outpatient Clinic (CBOC) in Rapid City. The current Rapid City CBOC is outdated and too small to meet veterans’ needs. When I met with VA Secretary Shulkin and the rest of the state’s congressional delegation this spring, the secretary indicated that he wanted to make these improvements in Rapid City, which is separate from former VA Secretary Robert McDonald’s decision on the potential realignment of VA services in the Black Hills. That proposal is on hold while the VA reviews its national footprint and veteran needs. I’m also pleased to report that the VA acted on my request to more prominently feature the Veterans Crisis Line (VCL) on its website, VA.gov. I suggested to Secretary Shulkin that the VCL be displayed in the first of four rotating banners on the VA’s website or be given a dedicated button that is immediately identifiable on the VA’s homepage. Within days of receiving my letter, the VA reordered its banners to feature the VCL, and I look forward to working with the VA to further promote this critical resource. Any veteran or member of his or her family can contact the VCL 24 hours per day, seven days per week by texting 838255 or calling 1-800273-8255 and pressing one. Our commitment to the men and women who serve in the military doesn’t end when they no longer wear the uniform. In many cases, that’s when they need us the most. We owe these heroes and the future defenders of freedom more than we’ll ever actually be able to repay, but that shouldn’t stop us from trying.
