“This year’s winners have true Trojan pride,” said Angi Kappenman, Vice President for Human Resources. “They are true to themselves. They are hardworking and dedicated to their work and the other things they involve themselves in – things like their community, homes, and family.”
She added, “The nominees and honorees are authentically committed to the mission of Dakota State University, and they are united under our driving goals and principles.”
The awardees were chosen by a committee, consisting of the Vice President for Human Resources, two Civil Service Association (CSA) employees, two Non-Faculty Exempt (NFE) employees, and two faculty members. The announcements were made at the 2021 Welcome and University Address on August 16.
