This photo of Laverne Diede, then prinicpal at Freeman Elementary, was taken as part of the Day in the Life of Freeman project on April 20, 1994. The project was a joint effort by the Freeman Courier and South Dakota State University Department of Journalism and resulted in a 40-page publication documenting various aspects of the day as it was in the community. It is being repeated this year as student photographers from both SDSU and Freeman Public will team up to record April 10, 2019. This year's project will also include a large-scale social media component, as well as a behind-the-scenes documentary focusing on both the 1994 and 2019 project, both being taken on by students from SDSU.
