Former U.S. Rep. Stephanie Herseth Sandlin will serve as commencement speaker at Mitchell Technical Institute's graduation on Friday, May 6. Herseth Sandlin was invited to speak because of her relationship with MTI and her assistance in securing funding for the school's wind turbine.
Said MTI president Greg Von Wald, "We're really pleased that she can join us for graduation."
Herseth Sandlin will speak to MTI's largest graduating class ever, more than 450 graduates.
The ceremony is scheduled to begin at 5:00 PM. It is free and open to the public.
