During halftime of the Quarrier boys basketball against Vermillion on Thursday, January 25th, a Dell Rapids resident was honored by a group of fellow Dell Rapids residents. Moe Lickteig was recognized for this thousands of hours of dedication to coaching youth sports, which he continues to do with his grandchildren, in Dell Rapids. Lickteig received a letter from South Dakota Governor Dennis Daugaard and a plaque. Mike Henriksen and Gary Croon presented Lickteig with the honor.
A group of Dell Rapids citizens have decided that it would be a great idea to celebrate the things that make Dell Rapids great, which are the residents of Dell Rapids! This group is not affiliated with the schools, booster clubs, or chamber, but rather is just a group of residents that will be looking to honor fellow residents for the great things they do for the community!
Lickteig was their first honoree to be recognized. Lickteig was surprised with the honor at the basketball game. The group honored Lickteig at the game because they “the gym was the place to find Moe.”
