Kyle LaFurge

For the Oahe Grain elevator, Onida native Kyle LaFurge says that being the “IT guy” is among his duties.

LaFurge followed up his SBHS graduation with college at SDSU for four years, where he pursued a degree in consumer affairs for human resources.

After college, he spent a year pouring concrete for Wickersham, and following a brief conversation with former Oahe Grain employee Lee Colestock about a vacancy at Oahe Grain, LaFurge accepted a position there, and the rest is history.

“In January I’ll have been here for seven years,” said LaFurge. “I’ve been loading trains, dumping trucks, and all my jobs before were outdoors. I was ready to come inside.”
