SDARL graduates who serve on the Board of Directors and as staff for the South Dakota Agricultural Foundation (SDAF) made National Ag Day a special day for many in South Dakota by donating an afternoon at Feeding South Dakota. March 22, 2022 was celebrated by many for recognizing the work agriculture is doing feeding American families.


Pictured above are SDAF workers, from left, Doug Berven, Steve Dick, Mike Jaspers (SDARL IV), Sarah Tveidt (SDARL VIII), Wes Chambers, Kyle Peters, Lorrin Naasz (SDARL X), Ellie Naasz, and Walt Bones (SDARL II). SDARL CEO Don Norton, at right, helped with packaging food to celebrate the day. Other SDAF board members assisted at the Rapid City location of Feeding South Dakota.
