Leonard Bear King Scholarship
21 April 2005

Leonard Bear King

      The long and satisfying educational and leadership career of a respected and humble scholar from Standing Rock is honored in a new award. The Leonard G. Bear King Scholarship was created earlier this year with a contribution from Bear King's daughter, Sheri Bear King Baker, an instructor in the college's Office Technology Program, and her husband Dr. Biron Baker, a physician in Bismarck. This year's recipients are Jennifer Vivier and Janice St. Claire. Bear King, who passed away in 2002, served mainstream and tribal colleges, earning the National Indian Education Association "Elder of the Year" award in 2000.
