UTTC's David Gipp receives AARC award
2 May 2011


SUPPORTIVE LEADER: United Tribes Technical College President Dr. David M. Gipp receives a plaque and congratulations from Bon Wikenheiser conferring on him the Abused Adult Resource Center’s 17th annual “Love Without Fear” award. Dr. Gipp is very supportive of AARC and its mission of serving victims of  domestic violence, said Wikenheiser, the organization’s chairperson. The March 24 presentation coincided with national Love Without Fear week, and took place at  the AARC’s emergency shelter for battered women and their children. “What you do here is so very very important to helping people rebuild and reclaim their lives,” said Gipp in accepting the award. “Often you are helping people who have all but given up. And that includes tribal people, because you include them in your services and you assist tribal communities in starting similar programs. We always know there’s hope. And you are a beacon of hope in this community.” The AARC is a nonprofit that serves victims of domestic violence and sexual assault and families in a seven-county area in south-central North Dakota.
