Renowned attitude expert Matt Booth was the featured speaker at a December 12 afternoon seminar for graduates of the South Dakota Agricultural and Rural Leadership Program (SDARL) and representatives of partner organizations.

Booth worked with attendees on ways to overcome negativity and increase positive attitudes of coworkers and other people they encounter daily. He conducted an attitude awareness exercise that challenged the crowd of 50 attendees to grade their own attitudes, and provided action steps to improve approaches in working with others.

The event started with an update on the academic and construction initiatives at the land grant institution from SDSU President Barry Dunn. He discussed the university’s new strategic plan and goals associated with moving the university forward for the future.

SDSU President Barry Dunn provided an update on the facility and academic improvements currently in progress at the state’s land grant institution during a recent SDARL alumni and partner seminar.
