Butch Thunderhawk


      It was a great pleasure at graduation to recognize Wallace “Butch” Thunderhawk Jr. as the American Indian College Fund Outstanding Faculty Member of the Year 2010-11 for United Tribes. Butch has been a part of college’s history for past 40 years. His work is rooted in the revitalization of tribal culture and language. He is a distinguished sportsman and campus ambassador, a noted artist, student favorite and friend to all. He was recognized for his teaching talent and commitment to education. We are honored and fortunate to have him join the ranks of the previous recipients of this distinguished award: Lisa Azure, Kathy Aller, Sheri Baker, Ray Dingeman and Ann Kuyper.

      Butch, we were instructed by your humble remarks when you thanked the Creator for your talent and fortitude and that it allowed you to share your knowledge with others, especially students.

      Congratulations to business instructor/department chair Carol Anderson on being named by the SBA as the 2011 North Dakota Minority Small Business Champion of the Year. And best wishes to Carol on her retirement. Her teaching experience and commitment to United Tribes was unparalleled, advising over 60 students per year and running a department alone and with limited resources. We wish you the best!

      Thank you to business instructor Amber Mathern for stepping into the business management program when Carol was out for knee surgery this year and continuing the success of this program. Congratulations for earning your Master’s Degree in Business Management!
