USD Chemistry Student Wins SDSWMA Scholarship
Originally from Nepal, Karki will graduate in December and begin a master’s degree in chemistry at USD in the spring of 2018. He works at USD as an environmental, health and safety technician training new USD undergraduate and graduate students in proper chemical safety procedures.
“I love the chemistry department,” Karki said. “The main reason I like USD is that the people are so friendly and it’s a safe place to live. I can focus on my studies.”
Given to a student ‘with directed studies relating to the protection and enhancement of our natural resources and environment,’ the SDSWMA Scholarship was founded in 1995, in remembrance of Michael (Paco) Sowers of Belle Fourche and James Pickering of Rapid City. Both died in accidents associated with the solid waste industry in 1994 and 1995.
