On the Wednesday of the last full week in April, anyone who works in the business world will make sure to have a fresh bouquet, a catered lunch, and a business-wide announcement letting all who work for you know just how much your Administrative Professionals mean to the company.

Administrative Professionals Day evolved from Secretaries Week to include the wide range of responsibilities and job titles of administrative staff in the modern economy.

No matter what department you work in for your company, there is always that one person unknown to you that makes a big difference in the day-to-day operation.

From Frybread to Pheasants - Here are South Dakota's Official State Things

Every state in our nation has chosen things that represent the state in one way or another to be official state things. Like a flower, or animal. South Dakota is no different.

The Mount Rushmore has a state flower. But did you know we also have a state tree and a state fish? Yes, we even have a state code.

Here is what we have so far in Wyoming. Thanks to the South Dakota Secretary of State's Office for the info:
