Ken Bird taught English and was a counselor in Revillo and Lake Andes, where he was renowned for directing exceptional high school theater productions. In 1979, he moved to Rapid City adn took a class in stained glass art. This new passion led him to quit teaching and open Dakota Stained Glass, through which he designed stained glass pieces for churches, schools, hospitals, and homes until his death in 2017. The Mikkelsen Library's piece, Along Life's Journey, was given in memory of Don and Lucy Fryxell.
