COLLEGE CONSCIOUS. During a college awareness program in spring 2009, Sitting Bull College (SBC, Fort Yates, ND) Student Services Department hosted 112 junior high and 203 high school students from the Standing Rock Reservation. The program was sponsored by the U.S. Department of Education in association with the South Dakota Department of Indian Education. “The goal of the program is to get high school students interested in a college career,” Julie Desjarlais, vice president of SBC’s Student Services, says. “For the younger students, it’s about showing them possibilities of getting a higher education beyond high school.” Photo by Ron Walters
