Native Leader Fellowships Awarded by United Tribes
May 8 2014

Award Recipients

AWARD RECIPIENTS: Two of the most promising students of United Tribes Technical College have received fellowships to continue their training and development as leaders in their chosen disciplines. At left, Heather Demaray (Three Affiliated) and Antonia Valdez (Wind River) are recipients of the 2014 David M. Gipp Native American Leader Fellowships. Demaray is an honors student in the college’s four-year business program. Valdez, also an honor student, is a pre-service teacher candidate pursuing a bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education. The two were recognized at a banquet May 7 in Bismarck attended by one-hundred college supporters and friends. Both received gifts and plaques from United Tribes Chancellor David M. Gipp, for whom the award is named. Gipp has been a college leader for 37 years and is nationally recognized for his work in American Indian higher education. The award is privately funded for students who demonstrate leadership potential in their home communities and at United Tribes. Recipients receive a monetary award and participate in leadership development and mentorship activities.
