On April 3rd, 2019 the South Dakota Germans from Russia Cultural Center was awarded the South Dakota Hall of Fame Acts of Excellence Award. Library Director Robert Russell states “The story of the Germans from Russia in South Dakota is inseparably intertwined with the history of the state and region. Their experiences in immigration, agriculture, religion, and small-town life are great examples of the commitment and perseverance of early settlers in South Dakota.” The South Dakota Hall of Fame celebrates the individuals, groups and organizations in South Dakota that make remarkable achievements every day to enhance the diverse culture of excellence in our state.
