USD Inauguration

Sunday marks the beginning of a four day celebration in the Vermillion community that concludes on Wednesday with the inauguration of the 18th President of the University of South Dakota Sheila Gestring.

Vermillion Chamber Director Nate Welch says the public is invited to attend the installation ceremony set for Wednesday afternoon at Aalf’s Auditorium.

Welch says the celebration is a way to recognize the strong ties between USD and the Vermillion community.

Welch says activities leading up to the inauguration include a Day of Service and a Day of Giving to help support charities in the Vermillion area.
