AROUND THE STATE:

PROM COUPLE LEGACY

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. _ A man who was part of the first gay couple to attend a high school prom almost 40 years ago says he didn’t expect to become entrenched in LGBTQ history. Grady Quinn looks back on the May 23, 1979, event as “just a moment,” despite its lasting legacy in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. Quinn was 20 when he attended Lincoln High School’s prom with 17-year-old Randy Rohl. The Argus Leader reports that Quinn says he’s glad the prom happened, but that they were just “being real.” SENT: 410 words.

EXCHANGE-HIKING BLACK ELK PEAK

RAPID CITY, S.D. _ After scarfing down sandwiches and grabbing free hiking sticks at the trailhead, students began hiking up — some at a runner’s pace — Black Elk Peak, the highest point in South Dakota. Two Crow was part of a group of more than 20 students, five staff members and three dogs who made the trek to welcome back the Wakinyan Oyate, or thunder beings, by smudging sage and leaving food and prayer ties at the 7,244-feet-tall summit. For generations, Lakota people have hiked up Black Elk Peak to honor the thunder beings, which disappear in the winter and return in the spring, said teacher Celestine Stadnick. By Arielle Zionts, Rapid City Journal. SENT IN ADVANCE: 543 words.
