UMary Graduates Largest Cohort of Native Scholars in the State


In Bismarck, the University of Mary graduated its first class of Native American Educational Leadership program participants. 

An elder presented each graduate with an eagle feather or plume.

This year U-Mary graduated more Native American scholars with a Masters in Education Leadership than any other university in the state.

The Associate Dean of the School of Education and Behavioral Sciences says the program is sponsored by the Office of Indian Education in Washington D.C.

She says this year, 11 scholars graduated…making it the largest cohort of Native scholars in the state.

“So today we’re honoring all of our graduates at the masters and doctorate level, but particularly our Native scholars who have joined the University of Mary in the Native American Educational Leadership program,” said Dr. Carmelita Lamb, Associate Dean of the School of Education and Behavioral Sciences.

Dr. Lamb says the graduates came to the university from all over the country.

Although a couple are from right here in North and South Dakota.
