Two Fort Peck Community College students are among 45 students attending the Society of American Indian Government Employees Student Leadership Conference in Albuquerque, N.M., this week.
David James and O’Dale Brown, both of whom are student senate leaders at FPCC and recent graduates are attending the conference, which is part of the American Indian Higher Education Association and is one of four conferences open to Native Americans in Tribal Colleges and Universities.
The conference is the 11th annual national training program, Native Pride and Spirit: Yesterday, Today and Forever. It concludes Friday, June 13. It provides forums on the most current issues, opportunities and challenges facing American Indian and Alaska Native government employees.
In addition to the two FPCC students, 45 other students are attending the conference.
“The reason I chose to apply for this conference is for the leadership workshops, career fairs and networking opportunities in which to enhance my leadership abilities for future use in a leadership position in a Tribal business, Tribal Government or as a U.S. government employee,” James said.
“My future hopes and aspirations include managing social change and forming rapports with colleagues in the field of law and justice while continuing to research and experiment within the field of science and engineering. This includes my short-term goal of graduating with a bachelors of science in engineering. I hope to eventually educate at the college levels. I am excited to give back to my college, Fort Peck Community College,” Brown said.
