JEWETT HONORED AT NSU REGIONAL SCIENCE EDUCATION CENTER RIBBON-CUTTING
Hundreds of people—students, professors, dignitaries and members of the public—gathered at Northern State University on Thursday to celebrate the opening of the first standalone academic building to be constructed on campus in 40 years.
The Harvey C. Jewett IV Regional Science Education Center ribbon-cutting ceremony honored the building’s namesake, longtime South Dakota Board of Regents Member Harvey Jewett.
“Northern is a critical, critical part of this city,” said Jewett, a tireless advocate for Northern during his 20 years with the regents.
While expressing appreciation for the recognition, Jewett emphasized the importance of partnerships in making the project possible.
“If you’re going to accomplish something, you need partners,” Jewett said.
He recognized partners who helped make the Jewett Regional Science Education Center possible, including the Great Plains Education Foundation, which was organized for the benefit of education in South Dakota. View the whole story on NSU’s site.
