District 28 Lawmakers Host Board of Regents at Timber Lake

TIMBER LAKE – A town meeting on South Dakota public higher education is being hosted Sept. 29 at the Timber Lake School by District 28 lawmakers.

The meeting will begin at 7 p.m. in the school dining room. Representatives of the South Dakota Board of Regents, its staff, and public university presidents will be on hand to visit with area residents.

Demographic shifts occurring across South Dakota mean fewer traditional college-age students in the future, along with more non-traditional students and a significant increase in South Dakota’s older populations.

Sen. Eric Bogue and Rep. Ted Klaudt, who extended the invitation to the Regents to meet in Timber Lake, said the ideas exchanged at this meeting will help South Dakota’s public higher education system better plan for the future.
