The American Indian Graduate Center’s 7th Annual Reception, held April 22, served as the perfect backdrop for the organization to recognize leaders in Native American education advancement.
This year’s honorees were AMERIND Risk, Professor Robert J. Miller, Ms. Alicia Ortega and Mr. Randall Willis.
“We honor the distinguished people and organizations responsible for the advancement of American Indian higher education,” Sam Deloria, director of AIGC, told ICTMN. “We recognize and celebrate the contributions of those in our AIGC community and the collective impact the contributions make to American Indian and Alaska Native higher education.”
