Scholarship fund started for CDL/HEO Students

HELPING HAND: Mike and Ann Knudson of Bismarck, authors of the book “Warriors In Khaki, Native American doughboys from North Dakota,” have started a scholarship fund at UTTC for CDL/HEO students. Pictured from left, UTTC Interim President Phil Baird, the Knudsons, CTE Coordinator/Welding Program Director Steve Shepherd and Assistant to the President Charisse Fandrich. The Knudson's, who say they both had financial help on their educational journey, donated $1,500 to launch the fund to give back to those who may need a helping hand. The scholarship is for students who are veterans, or come from the family of a veteran. The Knutsons made the contribution April 14.

Going the Extra
We were very fortunate for a wonderful turn-out and contributions by attendees during the Native Leaders Fellowship Dinner. Special thanks to Todd and Patricia J. Hall who donated $1,000 to the cause that benefits UTTC students. What a wonderful demonstration of generosity on the part of the Halls.

We were so blessed to have such a great talk about leadership by Sr. Thomas Welder. ‘Thank you’ to each who worked on the event for your hard work and dedication, and ‘thank you’ to all who attended or contributed for making this work for tribal students successful.
– David M. Gipp, UTTC Interim Chancellor
