MOUNT RUSHMORE NATIONAL MEMORIAL, S.D. (AP) – The heads of Mount Rushmore will provide a scenic backdrop Thursday as 150 people become American citizens.

KOTA television reports that Chief District Judge Jeffrey Viken will preside over the ceremony in the amphitheater at 2 p.m. MDT.

United States District Judge Karen Schreier, the keynote speaker, will talk about her own family’s journey to citizenship 115 years ago from Germany to South Dakota.

The Dakota Choral Union will perform, and Mount Rushmore National Memorial Superintendent Cheryl Schreier, the Mount Rushmore Society and students from West Middle School will make special presentations to the new citizens.
