The Unanimous Results of a 2012 Yankton College Alumni Survey – “To Keep the Face of Yankton College observable.”
Yankton College alumni can be proud of the legacy of Yankton College that continues to offer academic scholarships and support the liberal arts through sponsored activities despite its closing in 1984. The college is embarking on a new venture: the establishment of the Joseph and Sarah Wood Ward Alumni & Educational Center of Yankton College in partnership with the Dakota Territorial Museum at the historic Mead building located at the north end of Yankton.
Even now, we are not willing to allow the legacy which is Yankton College to perish, as we mortals must. We have banded together and committed to one another that we will establish a legacy whereby Yankton College will outlive us and our followers. And that legacy is the Joseph and Sarah Wood Ward Alumni & Educational Center of Yankton College which will be housed on the third floor of the Mead Cultural Education Center in Yankton, South Dakota.
To properly tell the Yankton College story, photographs will be displayed on photo panels or murals and much of the college memorabilia will be permanently displayed museum style in display cases at the Joseph and Sarah Wood Ward Alumni & Education Center of Yankton College.
