Former educator donates to BHSU
HSU recently received a gift of $37,919 from former educator Edith Gutsche Anderson.
A lifelong interest in education
motivated Edith to leave this gift to the BHSU Foundation for scholarships. The funds will assist students from Butte and Meade Counties with educational costs. Edith graduated from Newell High School in 1928 and attended Northern State Teacher’s College for one year to receive her first-grade teaching certificate. She later received her degree from Black Hills Teacher’s College after several years of teaching.
After beginning her 42-year career in a Butte County country school, she spent most of her years teaching in Nisland and Vale schools.
Edith also donated $12,961 to the
Newell School District for students who choose attend BHSU.

HSU music students now have access to a new grand piano. Dwight and Sharlotte Miller from Spearfish donated a Yamaha GC2 grand piano.
