Two Inducted into Innovators and Influencers Hall of Fame
Former Governor William J. Janklow and Madison businessman Jerry L. Prostrollo were inducted into the Dakota State University Innovators and Influencers Hall of Fame at the Legends and Legacy Banquet February 26.
The Innovators and Influencers Hall of Fame was conceived as a means to recognize those men and women who created new pathways, blazed new trails, and positively altered the course of events for Dakota State University or the State of South Dakota.
Governor Janklow is South Dakota's longest serving governor. He led the 1984 mission change that set Dakota State University on the path to becoming the information technology leader in the state and region.
Prostrollo is a local businessman who has been deeply involved in economic development in Madison and the State of South Dakota. His support was invaluable in the mission change process.
