The success of the community is tied to the success of Northern State University – that’s why local business owner Jeff Lamont has chosen to support the Educational Impact Campaign.


“If Northern succeeds, Aberdeen succeeds,” Lamont said. “Northern is a huge draw for the community and it brings in students, and they’re making considerable changes to stay competitive with enrollment.”


Lamont Companies will be one of the sponsors of the new scoreboard at NSU’s Dacotah Bank Stadium, part of the on-campus regional sports complex that is a component of the Educational Impact Campaign. Besides being a sponsor, Jeff Lamont also serves on the Educational Impact Campaign Committee.


The $45 million Educational Impact Campaign is a collaborative effort between Northern and the South Dakota School for the Blind and Visually Impaired. Along with the sports complex – which includes a softball field as well as the stadium – the campaign also includes a new SDSBVI facility and the NSU Athletic and Recreation Fields project.
