Broadcaster Press 5 May 15, 2018 www.broadcasteronline.com Appreciation For My Co-Workers By Gov. Dennis Daugaard Aaron Scheibe has been instrumental in getting companies like Agropur and Terex to invest millions of dollars in South Dakota’s economy, and he played a key role in the development of Foundation Park, the state’s first mega industrial site. The economic development deputy commissioner’s work has helped bring jobs and companies to South Dakota. Aaron is one of thousands of state employees I am proud to call a coworker. I have proclaimed Wednesday, May 9, as State Employee Recognition Day to highlight the work of our great public servants in South Dakota. Unlike Aaron, most of these individuals will not be recognized as part of a million-dollar deal, but they provide excellent customer service, invaluable institutional knowledge and essential work to keep our state running from day to day. For instance, the Department of Corrections’ parole division leans heavily on Jeremy Ortman’s exceptional caseload management skills. Despite having a workload of over 122 percent of the expected rate, Jer- emy is always willing to assist when needed. In 2017, he attained some of the highest ratings possible in performance indicators – 100 percent contact compliance and 100 percent compliance with the issuance of incentives. Then there’s Merlin Weyer who has given 43 years of service in Child Protection for the Department of Social Services. As assistant division director, he was instrumental in the development and implementation of review processes to centralize intake. He also authored the division’s Five-Year Child and Family Service Plan. When he retires in June, his service to South Dakota families will have spanned eight governors and seven division directors. It’s no stretch to say that children in South Dakota are better off thanks to Merlin’s work. Jill Kruger is the face of the South Dakota State Employee Benefits Program, giving presentation after presentation to help employees understand their health plan and benefits. It isn’t stand-up comedy material, but she has a contagious passion for it, and will stay until PIERRE, SD – Secretary of State Shantel Krebs is encouraging South Dakotan’s to register to vote ahead of the voter registration deadline for the June 5 Primary Election. every last question is answered. “As South Dakotan’s we value our right to vote and The Department of Agriculture appreciate the freedom we have to voice our opinions at has always operated with a light, the ballot box,” noted Secretary Krebs. “In order for an two-person central finance office; unregistered South Dakotan to participate in the June 5th but Jennifer Schrempp has been Primary Election, their voter registration form must be managing the Department of Agrireceived by their County Auditor by 5 PM local time on culture’s daily financial operations Monday, May 21.” for the last eight months by herself To register to vote, fill out a voter registration form, because of the unplanned absence sign it, then mail or turn it in to your County Auditor’s ofof a colleague.

The South Dakota Board of Regents authorized the university in Madison to offer a bachelor of science degree in cyber leadership and intelligence, both on campus and online. It is the first program of its kind at the state’s public universities, although Dakota State does grant related degrees in cyber operations and in network and security administration. DSU officials said this unique interdisciplinary program equips students with the knowledge of cyber systems and world cultures, international politics, human behavior, and leadership. New graduates will be prepared to work with government leaders and corporate executives to develop strategies to defend those organizations from cyber disruption. The federal Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates more than 28,000 professionals will be needed in cyberrelated fields by 2026. In other action, the regents approved two new specializations available to students within existing degree programs at Dakota State. One is a specialization in artificial intelligence and machine learning, which will be an option for study within the B.S. degree in computer science. Graduates with this specializa- the remaining campsites now have gravel pads and upgraded electricity.
