DSU Student Wins Haines Scholarship

PIERRE--Dakota State University student Amy Hyde has been awarded a $2,150 Haines Scholarship for the 2000-01 academic year by the South Dakota Board of Regents.

Administered by the Board of Regents, the scholarship is awarded each year to a Regental university sophomore, junior or senior who is pursuing studies leading to a teaching certificate. Applicants are evaluated on the basis of their GPA; high school and college memberships, services and activities/ and statements of personal and educational philosophy.

The Haines Scholarship was established by Douglas Fugitt in memory of his wife, Dora Lee Haines and her four sisters. The four Haines sisters were all teachers in one-room rural schools in Perkins and Corson counties of South Dakota. The fund is an open endowment to which additional gifts may be made at any time through the South Dakota Board of Regents.

Hyde, a sophomore with a 4.0 grade point average, is pursing a degree in elementary education. She is a 1998 graduate of Castlewood High School.
