Black Hills State University celebrates Earth Day with long-awaited announcement

Food and beverages were served in the Jacket Legacy room of the Student Union where Black Hills State President, Kay Schallenkamp, announced that the university has been awarded a silver rating from "STARS".

"STARS" is a program that rates universities on energy usage and sustainability practices.

It is the first university in the state to receive a "STARS" rating and is now a leader in sustainability.

"The university is taking a leadership role in sustainability. It's important to our students and it's important to where we are, where we're located in the United States. This is a beautiful place; people come here to go to school to be outside," said Katie Greer, Sustainability Coordinator of Black Hills State.

Greer added it took several years to achieve the silver rating and they are now going for gold.
