Matt Pawelski

I was born and spent the early years of my childhood in the Black Hills. When I was 12, my mother and I moved to New Mexico. During our time there, we were members of the local food co-op. After graduating from Portales High School, I moved back to the Black Hills and am now raising my family in the area I’ve always loved. I am a cyber security analyst at Black Hills Energy where I have earned several certifications in offensive cyber security and digital forensics. I‘ve completed the 110-mile Black Hills Veterans March as well as the Bataan Memorial Death March. I’m also on the board for Community Health. In my free time, I enjoy exploring the vast trails and beautiful scenery of the Black Hills.
