Stephanie Herseth Sandlin

Stephanie Herseth grew up on her family’s farm in rural South Dakota and was raised by a family that was very active in South Dakota politics: Herseth’s grandmother served as secretary of state and her father was in the state legislature. As a three-degree recipient from Georgetown, Herseth credits the university for fueling her interest in the federal government and career in public service.
