USD School of Education to Dedicate Bench to Boschee Family
The dedication will begin at 2 p.m., with an indoor social hour to follow.
USD is proud to honor the Boschees, their time at USD, and their passion and support for education in South Dakota. From winning multiple awards to writing several field-specific books, the Boschees truly embodied what it meant to carry the Coyote spirit.
Floyd Boschee accrued an extensive background in teaching, coaching at both high school and collegiate levels, along with educational administration, receiving professor emeritus status in the USD School of Education’s Division of Educational Administration.
Marlys Ann (Knutson) Boschee began her career in a one-room schoolhouse in the 1950s. After decades of teaching and advising students, she was granted a professor emeritus status in the USD School of Education’s Division of Educational Administration.
The couple has been referred to as “the dynamic duo.”
