Park library dedication scheduled June 19 at USD The University of South Dakota Department of Psychology and Clinical Psychology Training Program will hold a dedication ceremony for the new Terry Park Memorial Library in the South Dakota Union building on the USD campus in Vermillion on Saturday, June 19, at 2:30 p.m. The event is free and open to the public.
The library is named in honor of Dr. Terry Park who received his bachelor's, master's, and doctoral degrees from USD. Upon completion of his Ph.D. in clinical psychology in 1978, Dr. Park served the people of South Dakota as a mental health service provider and executive director of the Dakota Mental Health Center in Mitchell until his death on Jan. 22, 2002.
The library is made possible through the generosity of Dr. Park's family who donated his extensive collection of books and journals to USD's Clinical Psychology Training Program.
