I wanted to share a very prestigious and esteemed honor that our President, Lionel R. Bordeaux recently received on July 27, 2017 in Toronto, Canada at the World’s Indigenous People’s Education Conference. This is the largest Indian ? and is held every three years. President Bordeaux was asked to speak and was honored by WINHU. WINHU stands for Worlds Indigenous Nation Higher University. We are very proud of President Bordeaux here at Sinte Gleska. I felt compelled to share this distinguished honor with all of you. If you would like to read more on this honor by WINHU to President Bordeaux you can do so on our SGU website.
We are also waiting in anticipation as our Student Union construction is nearly completed, however, it will not be in mid-August as I said in my previous blog. This delay was due to unforeseen circumstances, but we are hoping for mid-September now. None-the-less construction is moving forward and looking good.
Just a reminder that SGU we are nearing our 2017 graduation and working diligently getting ready for our this year’s graduation commencement and also our Rosebud Reservation’s big 141st celebration.
It is a busy month and I will be glad when our classes start, the weather becomes cooler and we can get back to normal, so to speak. However, it is kind of a little sad for me as well, as summer will be coming to an end and fall is approaching.
Talk to you next month and please go to the Sinte Gleska University web site and you can review more of Sinte Gleska’s information/news!
(A big thank you)
