Anita Hicks named to Changemakers Cohort

Brookings, SD – SDSU Extension is pleased to announce the 17 South Dakotans selected to the third cohort of the South Dakota Change Network. From championing diversity and inclusion on boards, city councils and committees in Aberdeen to integrating new summer resident workers into the community of Wall, the members of South Dakota Change Network are committed to driving positive community change where they live and work.

Anita Hicks, of Martin, is one of the individuals named as a South Dakota Change Network participant. 

“I feel honored to have been chosen to be a part of the Change Network community. I look forward to working with and learning from all the inspiring individuals involved in this program. Taking that knowledge and building on it, my hope is to help promote and strengthen the positive aspects of our local community by bringing an artist in to work with young people. I hope to spark an interest in local youth by holding a workshop featuring a recognized artist to facilitate different sessions. We have such talented young people in our area, and I would like to help build their self-confidence in order to see their potential.”
