Youth To Engage In The Outdoors BROOKINGS, S.D. - South Dakota's outdoors are filled with opportunities for youth to explore, experience and engage with nature. As the new SDSU Extension Youth Outdoor Education Field Specialist, Katherine Jaeger will develop and provide programming to actively involve youth in the outdoors - from camping, hiking, conservation to resource management and much more. "The choices we make everyday impact the natural world," explains Jaeger, who previously served as the SDSU Extension 4-H Youth Program Advisor for Lincoln County. "Youth are the next generation's stewards of conservation. If we start them young, by providing education on and experiences with nature and the outdoors, no matter what career field they choose to go into - it can have a positive impact on their choices." In her new role, Jaeger will also develop and deliver 4-H Youth Development camping programs; assist with 4-H Shooting Sports programs and events; and partner with community organizations to develop and deliver materials, resources and training focused on engaging and connecting youth to outdoors activities and natural resources education. "Katherine is well prepared for this role," said Donna Bittiker, SDSU Extension State 4-H Program Director. "She brings experience from her previous position as a 4-H Youth Program Advisor with SDSU Extension as well as her prior experiences leading youth camping programs in other states." Prior to joining SDSU Extension in 2016, Jaeger's career centered around providing outdoors and natural resource programming to youth. Jaeger has a Master's Degree in Natural Resource Science and Environmental Management from the University of Minnesota. "I worked for three different outdoor learning centers which focused on the outdoors and taught mostly upper elementary and middle school students about the environment, ecology, herpetology - basically the world around them," she said. "I am excited to be able to impact youth across this state on a topic I am very passionate about."

Since 2012, the retention rate has increased four percent. The state Board of Technical Education heard a report on the retention rates at its meeting earlier today. “Students and staff at our state’s technical institutes should be proud of this retention rate,” said Nick Wendell, executive director of the Board of Technical Education. “The students behind these numbers represent a growing workforce, trained with the skills and credentials South Dakota employers need.” Southeast Technical Institute received board approval of a one-year veterinary assistant diploma and a two-year associate of applied science veterinary technician degree starting in fall 2018. Veterinary assistants help in evaluation and treatment of basic health, injuries and/or illness of large and small animals. They also provide office support and customer service, typically working in animal hospitals, clinics or other animal facilities. In addition to the duties of veterinary assistants, veterinary technicians can perform medical tests under the supervision of a licensed veterinarian to assist in diagnosing animal injuries and illnesses. They can also provide support to biomedical researchers and other scientists. Veterinary technicians can work in agricultural production settings, labs, research facilities, animal hospitals and clinics. The board also approved an expansion of Lake Area Technical Institute’s agricultural aviation program into a standalone associate of applied science aviation program with three options: agricultural aviation, professional helicopter pilot and professional fixed-wing pilot. The expanded offerings would be available beginning in summer 2018. The new degree options are designed for students interested in a career in the commercial pilot industry.
