He has also been a commissioner on Uniform State Laws since 1982, a member of the American Board of Trial Advocates, and the Association of Defense Trial Attorneys. He received a bachelor’s degree from Augustana College in 1957 and his juris doctor from the USD School of Law in 1962. While attending law school, Gregerson was SBA president. Prior to entering the private practice of law, he was a special agent with the FBI. He is a Korean War veteran having served three years in the Marine Corps.
The McKusick Award is presented annually to an outstanding member of the South Dakota Bar for contributions to the legal profession. The SBA selects the recipient from nominations by members of the South Dakota Bar. Marshall M. McKusick (1879-1950) was a professor at the USD School of Law beginning in 1902. He was named dean of the Law School in 1911 where he served for nearly five decades.
