SDARL Class XI held the first in its online book club series on April 29, discussing “An Astronaut’s Guide to Life on Earth” by Chris Hadfield. Interesting themes included how competitive leaders can learn to value team success more than individual success, and the importance of planning and preparation. Next in the book club series will be “Buffalo for the Broken Heart,” led by author and historian Jean Patrick with the South Dakota Humanities Council.

Pictured are Jennifer Henrie (SDARL IX), Program Director, Don Norton, CEO, and Class XI members Stacia Even, Cindy Aman, Matt Odden, Mike Miller, Justin LaMont, Heather Hofer, Corey Chicoine, and Tanya Torguson.
