MESSAGE FROM THE PUBLISHER

THE BRIDGE “The Bridge” is published quarterly by AGE Media & Promotion in partnership with the Harrisburg School District, the Harrisburg Chamber of Commerce and the City of Harrisburg.

When Mindy and I were approached to produce this publication in February of ‘20, we were excited because as 12 year residents of the Harrisburg community and parents of 3 children in the school district, we knew the need for a product like The Bridge. Our community is one of the fastest growing in the Midwest. Schools are being built, homes and apartments are popping up all over and new businesses are starting. We live in a time where we are highly connected through social media and electronic means, but many times we don’t have or know where to look for information about local schools, local people and local businesses. It made perfect sense to add The Bridge to our company’s line of products. We are now on our second year of producing this product and in the

past year alone there has been no shortage of stories to cover on local kids, families and businesses. As we continue to grow the publication and provide residents of the area valuable content about the local community, we are always open to suggestions and ideas on stories. Don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions or story ideas.

FROM THE MAYOR

ENGAGE IN YOUR COMMUNITY It’s been a little over a year since I stepped into office and I’m proud to see how engaged our citizens are. Community involvement is so crucial because what happens in the community directly affects you and what you do! When the community is involved in a project or organization, they have ownership of it and the decision-making process. And that is key to a successful outcome, even if not all individuals necessarily agree with the outcome. Let me talk to the adults for a moment: Remember in school how there were clubs, sports, organized volunteer opportunities, and things like student government? Well, schools didn’t invent those things. They just copied them from the real world so we could practice being involved in our communities. Now, for the younger crowd reading this: Keep practicing! Stay involved with something that interests you and don’t be afraid to branch out to a new area or topic. Engaging with civic organizations can help develop skills and abilities that you may not even have been aware of. Leadership skills, understanding and respecting diversity, and collaborating with others are all valuable takeaways from getting involved. Knowing there are folks willing to carry the torch forward builds confidence in the greater community. Everyone deserves a happy, healthy, and thriving community and we can be the ones to provide that for not only ourselves, but also the future generations that are going to live here. We need to lead by example. Volunteering in community service allows you to give something of value to someone else. Not to mention it makes you feel good. Although the organization may have enough

resources and equipment, they still need people to carry out the mission. The time, talents, and abilities you exhibit may fit an exact need within the community. It’s also a way to Mayor Derick Wenck develop new relationships and friendships with others that have the same interests as yourself. That network connects you to the pulse of what’s happening. Want to shape the future of your community? Then let your voice be heard. People who are active in their networks can have a big impact on the conversations that inform that space. Working closely with community engagement projects, I have seen first-hand the positive impact your public participation can have. So, I’ve convinced you to get involved, but you don’t know where to start. Check out the “Boards and Commissions” section of the City’s website for current meeting times. Or you can stop in or call City Hall to speak with the director of community programming about other opportunities within the City. But most of all, thank you for staying active in your community.

MESSAGE FROM THE CHAMBER

GO FOR THE GOLD (AND MAROON!) As I write this, the Olympic games are underway in Tokyo, and if your household is anything like mine, you’ve found yourself suddenly very interested in sports you know very little about. Despite not knowing the nuances of lesserknown sports, though, it is easy to spot an element that seems clear – even to a casual observer – that hard work, focus and persistence are essential factors in driving an athlete to the top spot on the podium. Sure, there are those who are blessed with natural coordination and superhuman strength, but even they must be relentless in the pursuit of the gold medal. Many of them have dedicated their entire lives to this one moment – spending hours in the gym or in the pool or on the track for what amounts to mere seconds of glory sometimes. They’ve been in it for the long haul, and now is their moment to shine. In thinking about these athletes and their quests to be the best, there are some similarities we can find with our economic climate in Harrisburg. Just like becoming a champion athlete, growing a community takes hard work, focus and persistence. While it seems like Harrisburg’s growth has been a sudden boom, it is really the result of developers, community members, city and school district staff, and others working together over the past two decades to address the rapid growth and continually striving to improve our hometown.

or Treating event on Friday, Oct. 29. It’s a great way to pop into our local Chamber members and thank them for their support of our community … and a great way to get an extra use out of your kids’ Halloween Adrienne McKeown costumes, too! You’ll also see a number of our Chamber members at the homecoming parade on Friday, Sept. 17, supporting our very own Tiger athletes. Who knows? Maybe one day some of our Tigers will be representing Team USA in the Olympics. We hope you’ll join us for these events and continue to cheer for the gold … and maroon!

Chair of the Board, Harrisburg Economic Development Corp. & Chamber of Commerce

I’m not suggesting we’re anywhere near the end of our race – quite the opposite. But it does seem like Harrisburg is having a golden moment right now. One glance in any direction around town and you can see dirt piles moving and new buildings – both homes and businesses – taking shape. We are regularly cutting ribbons and welcoming new businesses to our Chamber. School enrollment continues to increase. And as of this writing, sales tax dollars are up 41% over this time last year. (Thanks for shopping local!) Like champion athletes, however, we can’t rest on our laurels. We must continually be improving and innovating to stay in the top spot. In the last issue, I told you about the work that HEDC is doing to move Harrisburg forward. I’m pleased to report that we have the findings from the confidential interviews that were conducted, and we are on to the next phase of the process. Over the next several months, we will continue working in partnership with those who have already been a part of the process, but we will also be looking to all our community stakeholders—that means you!—to help shape the priorities of Harrisburg’s future. Keep an eye out for opportunities to be involved! In the meantime, as we head into the fall, mark your calendar and plan to join us for our annual Business Trick

GROWTH ALLIANCE

HARRISBURG IS FORTUNATE THAT BUSINESSES ARE LISTENING TO MARKETPLACE SIGNALS By Bob Fitch Harrisburg is ripe for more advancement and growth, according to Jesse Fonkert, president and CEO of the Sioux Metro Growth Alliance. “Harrisburg is pretty fortunate that market forces are at work and businesses are listening to those signals,” Fonkert said. “The fact that Sanford and Lewis are making a large investment in the community says a lot about where they believe the community is going. I think the people and leaders of Harrisburg have the right mindset and, if they want something, they’ll find a way to work towards it.” He cited the dynamic approach of Harrisburg Public Schools as a significant factor in local economic development and drawing people to Harrisburg and southern Sioux Falls. Fonkert anticipates the future holds enhancement of the Harrisburg housing market through the addition of more “step-up” or executive homes. “Harrisburg has done a great job with starter homes and the level up from that. More and more wealth is building in the Harrisburg area which will create demand for more retail and professional services, further enhancing growth.” The Sioux Metro Growth Alliance launched in March as a result of the merger of the Minnehaha County Economic Development Association and the Lincoln County Economic Development Association. The two organizations have worked closely for nearly 30 years and enjoy support both by the communities and counties served and from the banks and utility companies serving the member communities. The Sioux Metro Growth Alliance includes participation by 13 communities located around the city of Sioux Falls. They are Baltic, Brandon, Canton, Colton, Crooks, Dell Rapids, Garretson, Harrisburg, Hartford, Lennox, Tea, Valley Springs and Worthing. The mission of the alliance is to grow the communities and economies of the individual municipalities and Lincoln and Minnehaha counties overall. “I am so impressed with the towns we’re serving and the work that they’re doing. Each town has its own strengths and is working to build on those strengths while also identifying and addressing their individual shortcomings,” said Fonkert, who is a native of Mobridge and a graduate of Augustana University. He has experience in Washington, D.C. and previously served as executive director of the Hartford Area Chamber and Economic Development Foundation. Fonkert and his wife, Kelsey, live in Hartford. “A lot of us choose to live in small towns because of employment opportunities and because they offer a certain quality of life. Each of the towns in Lincoln and Minnehaha counties offers an identity and a community of people that really make them what 10

they are,” he said. In the next several years, the Growth Alliance plans to enhance its service to communities by increasing its staffing, introducing a leadership development program, and becoming more involved advocating on public policy issues. The increased staffing will provide a Jesse Fonkert chance for member cities to procure dedicated part-time economic development assistance. The leadership development program will help empower city officials and other volunteer leaders to better advocate on critical policy issues. That, in turn, will allow the alliance to improve its advocacy efforts on behalf of the cities’ economic development policy priorities. Fonkert said residents of Lincoln and Minnehaha counties are fortunate to live in this region – and people on the east and west coast are catching on to the benefits of living here. “We live in a very interesting time where Covid has changed the way people see life. People are looking to escape high density, high tax areas in favor of places like the Sioux Falls metro – which to most people in the country is a small town. There seems to be this yearning from people … they can work (via telecommuting) for firms in in larger urban areas, but find ways to make their dollars stretch further by living in safe, clean, growing areas like Sioux Falls and Canton and Dell Rapids and Harrisburg.” Growth is good, but Fonkert said it does come with interesting consequences, including how the local housing market will be affected. “Many of these people are coming from areas where the median housing price might be 30 or 40 percent higher than it is here. That allows them to bid houses up high to prices we’re not used to. That perhaps creates conditions where people who live and work here are being priced out of the market.” At the same time, the situation is not unique in the Sioux Falls area “because the entire country is experiencing a housing crunch right now.” Fonkert said the combination of the unemployment rate, lower workforce participation rate and rising wages is tough on many business firms right now. From a long-term perspective, though, “hopefully if it’s manageable and controlled it should lead to a better quality of life for everybody” because wages have not kept up with the increased costs in health care, housing and education.

LOCAL FAMILY PROFILE | ISRAEL

COUPLE LIKES WHAT THEY FOUND IN HARRISBURG

By Bob Fitch

When Trevor and Rhiannon Israel made the decision to buy a home after renting for several years in Sioux Falls, they initially made a house shopping visit to Harrisburg to rule out the town. That didn’t work.

We loved the fact that Harrisburg is small – one grocery store, Ace Hardware, and a couple of gas stations.” They’re also happy to have their 15-month-old son, Connor, in the daycare center in Harrisburg.

“We knew what we were looking for in a house and a yard and we found the one we liked here in Harrisburg,” Rhiannon said. “We liked the layout of the house and we liked the neighborhood. We went to Fresh Horses Saloon to talk it over.

Furthermore, with another baby on the way, the couple is pleased their children will be enrolled in Harrisburg Public Schools with its reputation for excellence and opportunity. Trevor said, “It’s powerful for the community that the school district is so strong. That’s important for us as parents, but it’s also important for those who may not have children.” Trevor is a field specialist with Valent USA, an agricultural chemical manufacturer. “I travel throughout the region, North and South Dakota and Minnesota. I work with private and public researchers on products and different crops and cropping systems. I evaluate traditional chemistries and also biologicals to get them ready for market; and provide technical training for our staff and agronomists for different ag retailers.” A native of North Carolina, Trevor previously worked with the Extension Service at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville (where he also studied to get his PhD). Growing up, Rhiannon’s family moved frequently. Prior to putting down roots in South Dakota, she worked in international marketing, focused on assisting and educating clients from all over the world. After moving, she worked locally at a residential facility providing outreach services before she launched Welcome Sioux Falls, LLC (see accompanying story). The Israels are enthusiastic about the growth and initiatives taking place in the community. Rhiannon volunteers on the Harrisburg Chamber Special Events Committee. Trevor enjoys yard work and gardening. They both like to travel, although that was curtailed both by the pandemic and a new child in 2020. “We’ve been fortunate to have some family and friends visit. We still took a couple road trips for the adventure. They were challenging with a toddler, but totally worth it, especially when you plan for extra stops,” he said. When they first moved here in January 2016, they gave tubing a try at Great Bear. “We definitely had to upgrade our winter clothing. My winter boots were really cute – but with the high heels on them, they were not practical up here. It was definitely an adventure,” Rhiannon said. But they’ve proven their adaptability to the northland and even go pheasant hunting and ice fishing. The first real pheasant hunt they went on, Rhiannon knocked two roosters right out of the sky. “That was amazing to see. She makes me proud all the time,” Trevor said.

WELCOMING, HAND-HOLDING AND BUILDING COMMUNITY

By Bob Fitch

The Sioux Falls Area Newcomers Club is a free resource which provides a place to help people have conversations and learn about the Sioux Falls area and get connected with people.

Five-and-a-half years ago, Trevor and Rhiannon Israel were enthusiastic about their move to the Sioux Falls area from Tennessee. Trevor had secured a position as a field specialist with Valent USA and the couple was excited about the prospects and adventure lying ahead in South Dakota. Trevor is a native of North Carolina and Rhiannon lived in many locations growing up. “I had given up my career in Tennessee,” said Rhiannon. “With my resume, I thought I’d be able to find something, but I struggled to find a job and get connected. It was tough because Trevor was traveling a lot and it was winter in a place where I had no friends. That impacted my experience.” Trevor’s new company paid for their house hunting visit, paid to move them to South Dakota, paid for temporary housing, and even paid to ship their car north. “They really took care of us. We couldn’t have asked for more,” she said. But reality hit soon after. “Moving upsets every aspect of your life. You are completely uprooting and you have to re-build everything. If you haven’t gone through it, you don’t really fully understand it,” Rhiannon said. “Once we moved up here, we were left to our own devices. How do we make this home? How do we meet people? It was a struggle for me,” she said. The gap in relocation support isn’t unique to Sioux Falls. It exists nationwide, especially if the dynamic includes a “trailing spouse.” For the person in the family who has a new job, he or she is excited about the new job and fully immersed in that. “But the so-called ‘trailing spouse’ who isn’t coming to a new job or THE BRIDGE | FALL 2021

the kids who had to leave their friends might feel like they’ve been dragged along. Rhiannon eventually secured a job as outreach coordinator with McCrossan Boys Ranch. In that position, she began building connections with people through the Young Professionals Network run by the Greater Sioux Falls Chamber of Commerce. The Young Professionals group is great, but its business focus isn’t applicable to everyone, she said. The gap in support on the personal side of relocation within Sioux Falls still concerned her. They met several other people who had similar experiences after moving. “One couple who we had become really good friends with actually left Sioux Falls because they had that same experience,” said Rhiannon. With Trevor encouraging her to start her own business, Rhiannon launched Welcome Sioux Falls, LLC, a professional welcome service that works primarily with businesses which are relocating or hiring employees from out of town. Welcome Sioux Falls provides person-centered, affordable relocation support focusing on the success of the employee’s transition in the greater Sioux Falls community. Services can start as early as the interviewing process with a candidate call, where the candidate can ask questions and gather information about Sioux Falls specific to their needs and from a third party (Welcome Sioux Falls), separate from the interviewing employer. Pre-move services provide direction and help that individual/family plan for and facilitate their move.

LOCAL BUSINESS PROFILE | WELCOME SIOUX FALLS cont. She said, “The biggest hurdle for most people is getting involved. Even for non-introverts, it’s difficult. It’s really hard to put yourself out there and walk into a room where you don’t know anybody. You’ve already gone through a lot in your move. Your life has already been disrupted. The last thing you need is to feel rejection. So we help people identify those spaces where it’s going to make sense for them to get involved – what’s a good fit for the interests of you and your family?”

The Sioux Falls Area Newcomers Club meets at a variety of locations in the greater Sioux Falls area. The pineapple on Rhiannon Israel’s hat below is a sign of welcoming and hospitality.

To meet these needs, Rhiannon also started the Sioux Falls Area Newcomers Club in order to have a free resource where any new resident can make connections. The Newcomers Club is a place to help people have conversations and learn about the Sioux Falls area and get connected with people. “We hold in-person events where people can get connected and meet new friends and get immersed in the community. Regardless of who is moving or who is moving them – whether that’s their employer or themselves – there should be something free that everybody has access to for some support. When we moved here, I was looking for something like this, but it just wasn’t available. “Some people need a lot more hand-holding. That’s part of the importance of the Newcomer’s Club. At least they know I’ll be there to ‘hold their hand’ – at least there will be one person in the room they know,” she said. In addition to Welcome Sioux Falls and the Sioux Falls Area Newcomers Club, Rhiannon will soon release the Relocation Roadmap. This workbook for families will be more affordable than one-on-one services. “During the past year, especially, we’ve seen so many people moving to Sioux Falls and South Dakota because they want to, not because an employer is helping them to move here. So the Relocation Roadmap is something to help provide some all-around support for those people as well.”

Transition services focus on that transition into the new life and community. Support and guidance are centered around topics and skills necessary for a successful relocation. Because relocation services focus on the personal side of the move, areas covered with the support may include: communication, community, destination services, employment, family, finances, friends, home, mindset, organization/timeline management, self-interests, service providers, struggles and support systems. After the family has moved here, that’s when the fun begins. “The bulk of what I’m really passionate about is the transition services,” Rhiannon said. “Once you’re here on the ground, how do you re-build your life? My passion is to see that people don’t struggle with their move or hate their experience. We want them to be happy. I love meeting people and visiting with them about Sioux Falls, Harrisburg and other area towns. I want them to know about the opportunities available on the personal side of their lives. What are they struggling with? How can I point them in the right direction?”

14

And the entrepreneurial seeds within her just keep growing. In August, Rhiannon launched The Relocation Companion, a nationwide brand based on the same principles as Welcome Sioux Falls. In addition, she started a nationwide relocation support network for women on Facebook. Many employers have understood the value of her services instantly, while others maybe have never moved before or don’t know where the pain points are for their new employees moving here from outside the area. Many employers don’t track the experience of their relocated employees. That could be a critical blind spot for employers who are struggling to retain and recruit qualified employees in today’s competitive marketplace.

REAL APPRECIATION OF HARRISBURG

By Bob Fitch

For many years, real estate and property management experts Jim and Linda Dunham would pass through Harrisburg once or twice a day. Now it’s where they begin and end every day. “For years, Harrisburg was kind of our stop on the way home from Sioux Falls to our acreage north of Canton,” Linda said. About three years ago, Dunhams moved into Harrisburg. “We just fell in love with the community. We’ve been so welcomed by Harrisburg, and we just love the people and the mentality. There’s a lot of hardworking, very dedicated, devoted people.” She said Harrisburg has retained a small town feel even in the face of its spectacular growth. “People want to know their neighbors, they want to feel safe, they want to say ‘hi’, and they want to wave to people they pass on the street. That’s why they’re attracted to Harrisburg – that small community feel.” Jim added, “It’s got the small town feel, but it’s still so close to Sioux Falls.” They recognize the importance of the progressive school system to the community’s success. Linda said, “I’m in love with the CTE (Career & Technical Education) program at the high school. It’s so invigorating to look at everything students are able to try, from culinary arts to graphic design and more. I think all kids in Harrisburg will have a better chance to find their passion in life versus just finding employment.

helped revitalize downtown Sioux Falls. After his father’s death in 2013, Jim and Linda started two companies: Jim Dunham & Associates and Solutions Property Management LLC. Linda takes the lead at Solutions Property Management which manages Jackson Heights Apartments, Shebal Townhomes and Brooklyn Square apartments in Harrisburg. In addition, the company manages property owned by the Harrisburg Economic Development Corporation as well as a number of properties in Sioux Falls and other area cities. Jim focuses on buying, selling and leasing property through Jim Dunham & Associates. “We’ve had a record year every year we’ve been in business and we’re going to break that again this year.” The companies recently added a joint office in Harrisburg because of the increasing level of business being done in the city. Both of their daughters work for them and each has three children. Daughter Elizabeth Jergenson lives in Harrisburg and works for Solutions Property Management. Daughter Ashley Dunham lives in Sioux Falls and works for Jim Dunham & Associates. In addition, two of Linda’s sisters and Linda’s nephew work for them, so it’s very much a family business.

“I’m just so proud of that being a resident of Harrisburg. Our continued success as human beings is in our children and they deserve every opportunity to be successful,” she said. They’ve enjoyed meeting people and giving back to the community by being active in groups such as the Harrisburg Optimist Club. Jim said a person can’t help but become involved in the Harrisburg community, whether it’s Harrisburg Days or baseball and softball games. “It’s fun to go to a small town ballgame. You go around shaking hands because you know half the people there.” Jim has been in the commercial real estate industry since 1987. “All I’ve done since then is commercial real estate. We sell and lease retail buildings and office buildings, multi-family dwellings, and mobile home courts. We’re involved in land developments and syndications; anything real estate-related except selling single family homes.” About 20 years ago, Jim met Linda who, at the time, was the CEO of the Realtor Association of the Sioux Empire. Five years later, she joined him at The Dunham Company, the real estate, construction management, and land development firm founded by Jim’s father, Don Dunham Jr., a visionary who THE BRIDGE | FALL 2021

Brooklyn Square in Harrisburg. Solutions Property Management LLC manages a number of commercial properties, townhomes, and multi-family dwellings in Harrisburg, Sioux Falls and other area communities. Jackson Heights Townhomes in Harrisburg is managed by Solutions Property Management LLC.

Visiting with Jim and Linda Dunham is like attending a master class in real estate sales and management. They’ve succeeded in adapting the focus of their businesses as the market has evolved and experienced shocks. The couple own Jim Dunham & Associates and Solutions Property Management LLC. Jim said the rise of Amazon changed the retail property market and the pandemic put the office property market on hold. A good share of their business has moved from retail and office to multi-family dwellings. “Our business model certainly changed and, at the same time, we’ve been successful in that change. Multi-family properties have become a huge part of our business. It’s been good to us,” he said. As part of several national organizations, they’re hearing conflicting stories about the near-term future of the market for office space. Some reports from large metropolitan areas say people are tired of working from home and want to return to the office, partially because they miss the social interaction. But other research says a substantial portion of employees who started working from home in the last year would find another job if they were told to return to the office. Linda said the long-term trend towards more telecommuting was shocked by the pandemic which forced companies to 16

quickly raise the bar on their technology systems. Linda said the rapid increase in telecommuting during 2020 alleviated some management fears about “If I can’t see my workers, they’re probably not working.” “I think everybody’s comfort level has gone up,” Linda said. “Now many employees are working from home and they like it, but I’m curious to see if we won’t see a shift back because we know a lot of social interaction and networking comes from the office environment.” She expects the market for office space will be down for several years and, while she doesn’t think the downturn is permanent, the shift back will be slower than 2020’s quick shock. “I know in our office we want to be together. We’re better together, we collaborate better, we relay information better,” she said. Demand for office space has shifted to personal services – hands-on, one-to-one businesses – such as hair stylists, red light therapy, chiropractors, dentists, doctors, massage therapists, herbalists and nutritionists. Demand in the multi-family dwelling market such as apartments, townhomes and mobile homes is extremely high after a short slump in 2020. The multiCONNECTING THE HARRISBURG COMMUNITY

family dwellings Dunhams manage in Harrisburg are at 100 percent capacity. “The growth of Harrisburg is phenomenal and that’s not going to stop any time soon,” Linda said. Both of them said the city needs “incubator” space which is affordable for small, firsttime business operators. “We’ve been looking under every rock for every possibility. We want to help these folks find a way to grow and flourish,” Linda said. “For start-up retail operations, the rent in Harrisburg is really equal to Sioux Falls. But the traffic count and the population has not caught up.” That reality factors into why restaurant growth hasn’t kept pace with the population growth. Adding restaurants in Harrisburg requires higher lunch-time customer counts which are difficult to achieve with so many residents working in Sioux Falls. “You’re not going to add a major sit-down restaurant here until there are more businesses here,” Jim said. However, he anticipates coffee shops and fast food will be on their way sooner rather than later. “There’s a lot going on in Harrisburg right now that people don’t realize.” His company recently sold property in Harrisburg for a town home project and also sold 40 acres in southeast Harrisburg for a residential/ industrial/multi-family development.

THE BRIDGE | FALL 2021

Linda said the residents of Harrisburg understand the need for commercial business growth, which helps to pay for municipal infrastructure such as improved roads and greater water and wastewater capacity. More business in Harrisburg along with “more rooftops” will lead to additional amenities such as restaurants. Jim said, “You have to grow or die.” Linda agreed: “We have a picture hanging in our Sioux Falls office which says ‘you can either float with the wave of change or crash under it.’ If you’re in a ghost town of 200, you’re not going to have any amenities at all.” At the same time, they said it’s important for Harrisburg to change from its past mindset of “anything new, any development is good” to the new mindset of asking “is this a good thing?” while avoiding spot zoning and having smart, manageable growth and ensuring that adequate infrastructure is in place. “You must have that foresight or you’re going to end up with a hodge-podge mess,” Linda said. “A lot of forward-looking planning should have been done 10 years ago, but it’s good to see it’s happening now.” She said living and doing business in a dynamic community is exciting. “In a dying community, kids just want to get out of town as fast as they can. That’s what would happen to Harrisburg without all this growth we’re experiencing,” she said.

LOCAL BUSINESS PROFILE | SHOWPLACE

MEET SHOWPLACE’S BILL ALLEN Tell us about your life and background. I was born and raised in Harrisburg, growing up about two miles from where the Showplace plants are located. I graduated from Harrisburg High School in 1980 and SDSU in 1985. I’ve worked in manufacturing for over 35 years, including the last 20 at Showplace.

Tell us a little about your family. My immediate family consists of my wife, Sheri, our children, Will and Katelyn, and our Springer Spaniels, Tucker and Charlie. As far as extended family, my parents, Bill Sr. and Mary Gene, had five children. I was the youngest and, according to my brothers and sisters, the most spoiled! All of us graduated from HHS, have lived in the Harrisburg area our entire lives, and have raised our families in Harrisburg. Our family exemplified growing up in “small town” Harrisburg. It was much different back then!

How did you get started at Showplace and what skills led you to your current position? I started at Showplace as materials manager, was promoted to director of manufacturing, then vice president of manufacturing, and now I’m the president and CEO. I am not sure it’s really a “skill” I have, but the thing I like to do most is build strong teams to get things done. I like to build and promote teamwork and communication whether it be amongst suppliers or plant managers. My mentors at Showplace were Tony Bour and Paul Sova, who both played different roles. Tony taught me to support the local community and Paul taught me how to successfully manage cabinet manufacturing plants. My mentors in life were my dad and my brothers, Tom and Doug. They all THE BRIDGE | FALL 2021

led quietly by example, without egos, working hard, putting family first, respecting everyone, and above all, being yourself.

Over the course of your life and career in Harrisburg, you’ve seen many changes. What is the biggest change you’ve seen and what is an accomplishment you are most proud of? In the 1960s, my dad bought some land on the edge of Harrisburg and started a business building houses; it was a huge risk for him. He put together a partnership with a banker and a lumberyard owner and took a huge chance on Harrisburg. He had five kids, very little money, an old backhoe, and a pickup full of tools. He wasn’t afraid of hard work. Harrisburg had about 300 residents at that time. Fast forward 60+ years, my brother Doug still runs that same business, Allen Homes, building homes and developing land in Harrisburg and Sioux Falls. An added bonus, he puts Showplace cabinets in all of the houses! Allen Homes has built, quite literally, thousands of homes for families in the area. That means a lot to me and I’m very proud of that. I can’t imagine what my dad would say about the growth of Harrisburg today. The fact that he saw opportunity and possibility way back then is very humbling to me. I’m also very proud of my kids. I believe the world they operate in is much more difficult and complex than the world I grew up in. Watching them navigate their way through it makes me extremely proud of them.

What do you think would surprise local homeowners about Showplace? Showplace is one of the 10 largest cabinet manufacturers in the United States. We ship cabinets to over 800 cabinet dealers located in all 50 states.

Bill Allen

The company puts about $80 million into the economy on an annual basis. That surprises me!

What is your long-term vision for Showplace Cabinetry in the industry but also in the local community? My vision is to continue to expand the incredible legacy the original Showplace investors created within the cabinet industry and within the Harrisburg community. Of course, I want to see the company continue to grow, but what I’d like to see most is all 620+ employees be extremely proud of the company that they work for and own. 19

Jim’s recently expanded from its original Falls Park area location to Harrisburg.

The decision to open a Harrisburg location was simple. “We came to the conclusion that a certain number of people just did not want to go downtown to deal with their transmission repairs. The lights, the traffic and the overall chaos that can be downtown can be too much, so we wanted to make it easier for our customers with a spot closer to them,” explains Huebinger. “Almost anyone in the Harrisburg school district can be at our facility within 10 minutes with 10 times less hassle.” Jim’s also offers customers contactless drop off and pick up for safety and they have a loaner car available. In any industry there are specialists; in auto care, the staff at Jim’s National Transmission are specialists in their sector. “As transmission specialists, we provide a vital service done by trained professionals who specialize in automatic transmissions.

WELCOME BACK!

NAVIGATING THE NEW NORMAL

Superintendent Tim Graf

After putting the challenging 2020-21 school year behind us, the focus now is clearly on the year ahead. In the Harrisburg School District, we celebrated that we could deliver in-person learning every day in every school building throughout the 20202021 school year. Public schools’ role in the fabric of our society and family life became very apparent over the past 18 months, both in our state and nationally. Our top priority is to continue in this capacity during the year ahead, with strategies for what school will look like now taking center stage.

The District Restart Plan will continue to be fluid to reflect changes in our community, region and state, along with new information regarding the virus and CDC recommendations. The Harrisburg School District has and will continue to balance

families’ needs and the physical and social-emotional health of students and staff, all while being keenly aware of the demands placed upon our school community. Because opinions vary greatly on some pandemic-related topics and the protocols employed, public schools face a challenge in balancing community values with the needs of all. Despite the challenges, we will once again do everything we can to provide on-campus, in-person learning throughout the year. The District Restart Plan will be posted on our school website. We will regularly post the number of active COVID cases in buildings and respond to changes as they occur. Welcome back to School 2021-2022!

AWARD-WINNING CULINARY ARTS PROGRAM MATCHES EDUCATION WITH THE REAL WORLD An educational program seeking to train students for careers in the real world needs several assets to be successful: a dynamic instructor; proper facilities and equipment; support from industry professionals; and eager students ready to learn. The Culinary Arts & Restaurant Management Program at Harrisburg High School checks all the boxes. Harrisburg High School’s Hospitality & Tourism Program is under the direction of Deb Rombough, who developed the program from the ground up in just a few short years. Rombough has secured funding and enrolled in three levels of culinary training provided by the National Restaurant Association Educational Foundation (NRAEF). The organization’s ProStart Summer Institute offers educators the opportunity to hone their culinary and restaurant management instruction skills with courses taught by nationally recognized faculty. With in-depth demonstration and lecture instruction, educators learn how to apply their course’s takeaways to their own classrooms.

Rombough has worked closely with Dr. Michael Amoliins, curriculum director at Harrisburg High School, to ensure students have access to industry-grade equipment. Last fall, a full industry-grade culinary kitchen and instructional space was opened at HHS. The state-of-the-art facilities allow Rombough CONNECTING THE HARRISBURG COMMUNITY


to introduce students to advanced techniques. Rombough is in the early stages of beginning a ProStart team in Harrisburg, including coaching the recent gingerbread house competition state champion. The HHS Culinary Arts & Restaurant Management program has created unique opportunities for executive chefs and culinary experts from the area to provide expertise on specific menu items, including a multi-year partnership with Chef Nicholas Skajewski, a 2012 graduate of Harrisburg High School who has had positions as the executive chef at Carnival restaurant in Sioux Falls and the leader of the nutrition program at Avera. Skajewski now operates his own catering business. In concert with Rombough, he has donated countless hours to ensure the lessons being offered match experiences found in the industry. The program also launched a joint venture with HHS’s DECA and FCCLA clubs. The group has offered baked goods and frozen yogurt to the student body through the school store. This opportunity promoted healthy snack choices for our students while also creating a very successful business venture between the career clusters and Career and Technical Student Organizations (CTSO). The group also offered baked goods to HHS staff through a program known as “Fresh Case.” Each of these experiences has combined interactions with industry professionals and studentled programming to allow students to explore their interests in the field at an extremely high level. In addition to these joint partnerships, Rombough has been a dedicated member of the Career & Technical Educational (CTE) community in South Dakota and a leader in the HHS Hospitality and Tourism Program. She presents workshops, participates in professional development opportunities, and contributes her expertise and insight into regional projects. Prior to pandemic restrictions, Rombough arranged a partnership with Plum’s Cooking in downtown Sioux THE BRIDGE | FALL 2021

Falls which allowed culinary students to take monthly trips to the store to participate in master classes with chefs from the area. The employees/ managers of Plum’s offered tips and suggestions to the students, as well as allowing them to explore the store and learn more about industrygrade supplies. Students were able to translate their experiences into meaningful projects at school, and Plum’s has become a solid community partner as a result of the experience. Students participating in the Culinary Arts/Hospitality and Tourism Program at HHS have the opportunity to earn their ServSafe Certification as part of the course sequence. In addition, the reputation of the culinary training they receive from Rombough and the guest industry experts has provided opportunities for employment.

Students have participated in field internships and obtained full employment in the field. In spring 2021, the HHS Culinary Arts and Restaurant Management program was recognized as the Innovative Program of the year by the South Dakota Association for Career and Technical Education.

PERSPECTIVE

THE GIST OF THE LIST Last night at mealtime my son told a story about how he lost a phone number he needed … said he researched it, wrote it on a box at work, then turned around and the box was gone. That kid was speaking my language. I’m often on a near-constant pivot counterclockwise, seeking a list I prepared and feeling frustrated because it did not reappear when I needed it. Jane Klemme For this reason, paper lists have gone by the wayside for me along with rotary telephones and manual transmissions. There is one mental list I continue to maintain. It is known as my intolerable list. Contrary to popular belief, this is not a checklist of laundry detergents I think are stinky or foods that cause heartburn. Nope, this is a list of people who drive me slowly insane. Now consider that guy at the office. Yes, the one who knows EVERYTHING. Super interesting how he graduated high school just last week but with him, there is nothing left to ponder because Google figured it all out. Unbeknownst to him, there are a few of us who were born before Google birthed YouTube and we like to gather information from others who have personal experience with the project we are undertaking. Of course, that guy will always be more tolerable than my secondcousin Ida. She’s so intensely funny! She makes comments all evening long that build herself up while cutting me down. Perhaps she can’t see that I’m not laughing. There is vacancy on my list for both of these characters. Not too long ago, I became aware that keeping a long list of these characters can be emotionally quite draining. The goal is to recognize our differences and find common ground. Someone formerly intolerable may move to tolerable with ice-cold caffeinated beverages. Debate is healthy because iron sharpens iron. When it comes to friends and acquaintances, we need to diversify our portfolio. Surrounding ourselves with people who think like us and act like us, those whose actions we can predict and comfortably anticipate, is not in our best interest.

Dealing with the intolerables can seem like trying to uproot a thistle. Thistles are scratchy and difficult to uproot. When you find new ways to understand and communicate with the scratchy people in your life, it can be as rewarding as chopping down a thistle with a weed-eater – truly satisfying.
