Dr. B Scholarship Endowment

Dr. Mark Butterbrodt “Dr. B” Native American Scholarship Endowment

In memory of Dr. Mark Butterbrodt, “Dr. B” your memorial gift will leave a lasting impact on students at USD.

A native of Watertown, SD, Harvard educated, and a graduate of the University of South Dakota Medical School, Dr. Butterbrodt dedicated his life to improving the health and welfare of Native American by working throughout his career as a doctor on South Dakota Indian Reservations from the 1970s to 2023. When he wasn’t saving lives in the emergency room or helping individuals in the clinic, he worked in the community tending gardens, taking care of the fitness center or even building sandboxes for children.
