UND Grads honored

UTTC President Dr. David M. Gipp (right) was recognized April 7 as one of nine University of North Dakota graduates featured in UND's "More Than Beads and Feathers" campaign. Gipp (Standing Rock), a 1969 grad, is one of more than 2,500 American Indian graduates of UND. The poster and advertising campaign, sponsored by UND's American Indian Student Services, highlights some of the prestigious careers they have achieved, erasing long-held stereotypes and emphasizing a contemporary view of Indians. To Gipp's right is Dr. Leigh Jeanotte, director of UND's American Indian Student Services and UND President Dr. Charles Kupchella. Two others featured in the campaign are seen on posters: at rear left Phillip "Skip" Longie (Spirit Lake) president of Varsity Bags, Inc., Fort Totten, N.D. and Twyla Baker-Demaray (Three Affiliated) research analyst at the National Resource Center on Native American Aging, Grand Forks, N.D.
