7 SD Students Get Native American Scholarships

May 24, 2012, 5:39 AM

PIERRE, SD -

Gov. Dennis Daugaard says seven South Dakota students have been chosen to receive scholarships aimed at helping Native Americans pursue degrees at schools in the state.

The Hagen-Harvey scholarships are named for the late state lawmaker Richard Hagen from Pine Ridge and Minerva Harvey, who left her estate to set up the scholarship program.

Recipients must be South Dakota members of an American Indian tribe. They are selected based on grades, college-entrance tests, leadership potential and other factors.

The scholarships range from $1,000 for a single year to $6,000 over four years.

Recipients are Leo Chasing In Timber of Rapid City, Aspen Ducheneaux of Eagle Butte, Courtney Fischer of Parade, Lyle Jacobs of Pine Ridge, Adonnis Martinez of Rapid City, Francesca Willard of Chamberlain, and Brittany Youpee of Rapid City.
