2022 SEDC Women in Leadership Scholarship Recipients


Tiffany Even of Legacy Financial Partners and Kaitlin Palmer of Black Hills State University in Spearfish have been selected as the Spearfish Economic Development Corporation (SEDC) 2022 Women in Leadership Scholarship recipients. The annual scholarship will provide Even and Palmer with the opportunity to attend the South Dakota Center for Enterprise Opportunity (SD CEO) 2022 Women in Leadership series to be held July 26-28 at The Barn at Aspen Acres near Spearfish.

The Women in Leadership series is in its ninth year, thus far graduating over 150 local business leaders with specialized training in communication, decision making, project management and other vital aspects to successful leadership in both professional and personal contexts. “Formal leadership training has evaded my past, and I feel a strong desire to pursue tools and skills to become a better leader in my various roles. It is then my hope to make a greater difference in my areas of influence within our company and community,” says Even. While Palmer said, “I would like to learn how to champion others and become a better mentor to other young professionals so that I can pass on the amazing guidance I have benefited from.” Both scholarship recipients have displayed a strong desire to give back to the Spearfish community.

“Supporting and investing in the professional development and personal growth of our local business leaders is very important to our organization,” noted SEDC Executive Director Kory Menken. “SEDC is pleased to partner with SD CEO in helping to build strong leaders for our community and region.”
