PIERRE, SD -
Hundreds of people filled the state capitol to pay their respects to former Governor Bill Janklow Tuesday morning including 35 fifth-grade students from Stanley County.
The students stopped by the capitol during the public viewing of Janklow in the rotunda. Their teacher says it's a good opportunity for them to be part of history.
"These kids are fifth graders. They are all about ten years old. They know a little bit about the governor and his impact in South Dakota. We just decided to bring them on over so that they could take part in this historical event," Stanley County teacher Linda Clair said.
More than 400 people filed through the capitol during the public viewing.
