Next week the South Dakota Hall of Fame inducts nine new members. Since 1974, the hall has honored and recognized individuals who have shaped the fabric and culture of the state. Greta Chapman, president and CEO of the South Dakota Hall of Fame board, says the honored individuals also demonstrate a level of excellence that inspire others in the state. Members include important historical figures along with individuals from government, business, agriculture, sports, medicine, arts, entertainment and other fields.
