PACKING A PUNCH FOR KIDS: Two heavy weights have combined their influence to help American Indian youngsters. One of the first groups to benefit is Theodore Jamerson Elementary School on the United Tribes Technical College campus. Thanks to Ernie Stevens Jr. (left) of the National Indian Gaming Association, and legendary pro wrestler Hulk Hogan, TJES received a $3,000 gift from the Dreamseekers Foundation. UTTC President David M. Gipp accepted the award from Hogan during the Lakota Nation Invitational in Rapid City, SD. The generous support was part of an ongoing effort by Stevens to help Native families and organizations on the Great Plains during the holiday season. Along with NIGA Executive Director Mark Van Norman, Stevens and Hogan formed Dreamseekers earlier this year to help improve healthcare and education for Native youngsters. UTTC and TJES are very thankful to Ernie Stevens, Mark Van Norman, and Hulk Hogan and his Hulkamaniacs for their contributions to Native youth.
