On the Mend
I want to thank everyone for their prayers and thoughts during and after the stroke I had recently. I’m recovering well and therapy is going OK. I’m mending well and learning one day at a time along with patience. I hope to see you soon.

Thank you to the United Tribes staff for the beautiful bouquet of flowers given when my father, Lavern Renwick, passed away August 13. Also thank you for all the cards, e-mails, hugs, and support that I received during this difficult time.

Dr. David M. Gipp, United Tribes President, participated in an August 4 roundtable session at the White House with Native American Business Leaders. The session resulted in developing a 46 page document reflecting the needs and recommendations of northern Great Plains tribes and tribal colleges.
On August 16, Dr. Gipp met with President Obama and four of his cabinet secretaries at NE Iowa Community College, Peosta, IA, for a session focusing on Rural Economic Development.
Dr. Gipp was named a “Champion of Change” by the White House and invited to participate in a September 21 roundtable discussion about the positive impact of community colleges across the nation. The White House lauded its ‘Champions of Change’ as those who make an impact in their communities and help America rise to meet the challenges of the 21st Century. The roundtable discussion was streamed online on the White House website.
