Game, Fish And Parks Commission Awarded Commission Of The Year PIERRE, S.D. – The Western Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies (WAFWA) announced this week that the South Dakota Game, Fish and Parks (GFP) Commission has been named Commission of the Year at their annual conference in Eugene, Oregon. “In recent years, the South Dakota Game, Fish and Parks Commission has dealt with difficult, and at times, contentious issues beyond their normal duties of establishing rules and regulations governing parks, wildlife and fish resources on behalf of this state,” said Gov. Dennis Daugaard. “The members of this commission provide an exemplary model of how progress can be made and how public trust can be increased through transparency and public engagement in the decision making process. Their willingness to face the crucial conversations head on and find platforms for all individuals to provide input is what makes them deserving of this honor.” The GFP Commission is highly engaged in the social science of managing the state’s resources and opportunities. Nonresident waterfowl license allocations, deer license allocation and its drawing structure, nonmeandered waters as well as waterfowl refuge and boating restrictions are examples of highly polarized and diverse philosophical belief issues this eight member commission has addressed. Concurrently, the commission is moving forward with evaluating nonresident hunting, fishing and state park use, allocating opportunities and finding a balance between resident and nonresident desires. “It is very humbling and satisfying to be recognized nationally for our work,” said GFP commissioner Cathy Peterson of Salem. “The work that we do as a commission could not be done without the support, leadership and professionalism from the department staff who patiently provide knowledge and expertise on all issues we are faced with.” One of the primary responsibilities of the GFP Commission is to establish, adjust and remove administrative rules (regulations). In an attempt to be more responsive to the public’s desire for regulation change, this commission has encouraged the public to bring forward petitions for desired changes. In the past two years, the GFP Commission has considered several petitions; some have been adopted and moved into the rule promulgation process and others have been denied. It’s the commission’s belief to be responsive to the public’s interest for change which has resulted in a higher number of petitions. It is also their belief that these topics, often unpopular, deserve a public hearing and the opportunity for all sides to weigh in before making a decision. “This is truly an honor to be part of a group receiving such high recognition,” said GFP commissioner Doug Sharp of Watertown. “I want to express gratitude to the department secretary, Kelly Hepler, for submitting the nomination, but more importantly, for being the leader who has allowed these difficult issues to be discussed and managed through the teamwork of both the department and the commission.” To learn more about the GFP Commission, its members and their role in sustaining outdoor recreational opportunities of South Dakota’s state parks, fisheries and wildlife through transparent decision making processes, visit https://gfp.sd.gov/ commission/members/. Since 1922, the Western Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies (WAFWA) has advanced conservation in western North America. Representing 24 western states and Canadian provinces, WAFWA’s reach encompasses more than 40 percent of North America, including twothirds of the United States. Drawing on the knowledge of scientists across the West, WAFWA is recognized as the expert source for information and analysis about western wildlife. WAFWA supports sound resource management and building partnerships at all levels to conserve wildlife for the use and benefit of all citizens, now and in the future. Board Adopts Changes To State Graduation Requirements PIERRE, S.D. – The South Dakota Board of Education Standards adopted proposed revisions to South Dakota’s high school graduation requirements at its meeting earlier today, with an amendment directing the South Dakota Department of Education to review the requirements again after Jan. 1, 2026. The newly adopted graduation requirements aim to combine opportunities for rigor, student engagement and flexibility. The new requirements were developed to provide students with multiple opportunities to meet their postsecondary and career goals within a framework of general high school graduation requirements. “Today’s students need to be prepared for what comes after graduation—to find that intersection of aptitude, interests and workforce opportunity,” said Gov. Dennis Daugaard, who was among those testifying at today’s meeting. “These new requirements are about providing vital flexibility so that each student can find his or her own right way to success and make informed choices about that next step.” One of the major changes in the new requirements is the concept of endorsements, which signify students have taken coursework with a specific focus. Stu- dents can earn more than one endorsement, since they share some of the same course requirements. Students will not be required to earn endorsements. The endorsements are as follows: • Advanced: indicates a student has pursued the coursework consistent with entrance requirements for postsecondary education at a university • Advanced Career: indicates a student has career experience in a concentrated area, based on academic and/or workplace experience and a related credential • Advanced Honors: indicates a student has pursued advanced rigorous, academic coursework consistent with the South Dakota Opportunity Scholarship course requirements Pending approval by the Legislature’s Rules Review Committee at its Aug. 20 meeting, school districts may choose from the following options this fall: • Fully implement the new graduation requirements immediately • Continue following the previous state graduation requirements adopted in 2009 • Implement the new requirements for some students By fall 2020, districts must make available to all students the endorsement options in the new graduation requirements. 2018 S.D. Transportation Hall Of Honor Inductees Announced PIERRE, S.D. – Laurie Schultz from Pierre and the late Charles Lien of Rapid City have been chosen for induction into the South Dakota Transportation Hall of Honor for 2018. The purpose of the Transportation Hall of Honor is to recognize those who have made a lasting, valuable or unique contribution to South Dakota’s air, highway or rail transportation system. The South Dakota Transportation Hall of Honor dates back to 1972 and now includes 90 inductees. Laurie Schultz spent 29 years with the Department of Transportation and 10 years with Brosz Engineer- ing, Inc. Laurie was the first female engineer hired by the SDDOT and has left a legacy of accomplishments. She spent time as a bridge designer, an urban engineer, traffic engineer and twice as a program manager, most recently with the Office of Administration. Laurie has always been an advocate of finding the most cost-effective way to do a project and worked very closely with local governments to assist them in her roles with the DOT and Brosz Engineering. Charles “Chuck” Lien was the founder, 75-year employee and Chairman of the Board for Pete Lien and Sons, Inc. Chuck worked in the mining business with his father and brother, spent time in the U.S. Army during WWII and with the S.D. National Guard during the Korean War and earned a degree in General Engineering from the University of Wyoming He worked until he was 93 to grow the family business to leave a legacy for his children and grandchildren. Chuck was well known for both his business and philanthropic contributions to Rapid City. Banquets to honor both Schultz and Lien will be announced at a later date.
