“I have no idea just who all helped get that wonderful program together; but I will never forget it. I still find it unreal that part of that was for me. I thank each and every one of you from the bottom of my heart.”— Mary Kraft (2015 Keystone Honoree)

       

Save the date! This year’s 10th Annual Keystone Awards to be held on April 16, 2020.

Every year The Hub celebrates and honors three individuals who have dedicated their lives to our community.  The Keystone Awards are a one of a kind celebration, modeled after the Kennedy Center Honors.  With unique entertainment, formal awards presentations, a dream vacation raffle, delicious catering, and an after-party, the Keystone Awards is the event to attend! This year’s event will be held on April 16, 2020 at the WYO Theater. Tickets go on sale in February and can be purchased in person at the WYO Theater or online at www.wyotheater.com.

The Keystone Awards also recognizes outstanding high school and Sheridan College students as “Keys to the Stone.” The 2020 Keys to the Stone will be announced at a later time.

Casey & Sue Osborn
Casey & Sue Osborn
Since moving to Sheridan in 2000, Casey and Sue Osborn have tirelessly worked to make the community a better place. The Osborns remain committed to the community both through their business, EMIT Technologies, Inc., and their involvement with Sheridan County School District #2, the Hub on Smith, the Sheridan Recreation District, the Seven Pillars Foundation, the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, Kids Life, Legacy Pregnancy Center Center, Double Day Sports Complex and First Light Early Childhood Education Center.

Casey grew up in Big Piney and met his wife Sue at the South Dakota School of Mines. They were married after their sophomore year of college, and received civil engineering and chemical engineering degrees, respectively. In 1983, the couple moved to Big Piney to work with Casey’s father in an oil field service business. Following business opportunities in the Powder River Basin region, the two relocated to Sheridan and started EMIT almost 20 years ago. Casey could often be found on the shop floor, and Sue managed corporate operations.

Casey and Sue both believe there is great value in education. Their youngest son grew up in Sheridan, and the two have supported Sheridan’s schools in many ways. Casey said that through involvement in organizations like The Hub on Smith and the Rec District, he’s learned that Sheridan is full of hardworking people doing great things for the community. With that in mind, he has launched the Provision Fund, a non-profit geared at involving even more people in community improvement through personal buy-in.
