Sweet Sweet Summer

I love summer time! 

In my youth, (because I am so old at the age of almost 26!) summer meant attending all of the local fairs with my cattle, pigs and sheep. Now, I get to attend those fairs and do a lot less work! This summer I am planning my wedding and revamping our new student orienation session that occurrs before the first day of school. Let me know if you have ideas!  I am also working on what activities NAL will be working on this next year! 

I have completed a scrapbook of all of the NAL activities that have happened in the past 4 years. I plan to add to this book every year. Come to my office and check it out! It is pretty amazing what every group of students has accomplished!

Final Class Project

April 28, 2014

Our final class project involved building a bridge of straws, newspaper and tape.. This project divides one team into two divisions. The teams goal is to build a bridge that will hold objects. Each division is in charge of one section of the bridge. The catch? The divisions are only allowed limited communitcation, including a two minute phone call, a fax and an email. Divisions face obstacles during their time building the bridge. These obstacles can include power outages, sick team members and an avalanche that increased the size of the canyon that bridge had to cover. 

 

I love a group activity for the final project. It can really show how students have evolved as leaders throughout the school year and their time at CCC.

 CCC’s Rally in the Valley powwow hosted 70 dancers this year! It was a great day filled with excellent singing and dancing!

Enrollment for the summer and fall semesters begins on April 14th! All school bills must be paid in full before enrolling.

Native American Leadership enrollment day will be on May 22nd. I have to have your ACT or Compass test scores before you can enroll!

Graduation will be held on May 10th in Nellis Hall. I am always so excited to see students move on to the next level of education!

Powwow Time

March 13, 2014

 It is almost powwow time! For the past four years, Coffeyville Community College has hosted the “Rally in the Valley” youth competition and intertribal powwow. Youth competition begins at 1:00 p.m. followed by a hand drum competition, gourd dancing and then the adult grand entry.

 Hosting the powwow is a wonderful opportunity for the Native American Leadership students to work as a team to bring a piece of Native American culture to Coffeyville.

We hope to see you there! 

Scholarships are still available for the Native American Leadership program. Please contact Taylor Davis by email, [email protected] or by phone, 620.251.7700 ext.2092 for information. The scholarship covers tuition and loan of books on the main campus.

This is wonderful, and looks to be an opportunity for everyone to get together and learn a lot about Native American culture. Definitely a excellent opportunity for the Leadership students that will be in attendance on March 29th. My only question pertaining to the Powwow is if there's a way to get an enlarged image of the flyer that's posted in this blog? It's not able to be enlarged, and I find reading the actual itinerary of the events, as well as the head staff, to be rather difficult. And regarding the scholarship, it was mentioned that the scholarship itself covers tuition and book loans on campus. But has it already been determined how much one can receive if accepted into the scholarship program? Or is that simply a question for Taylor? Thanks.

Valentines for Veterans

 Native American Leadership students created Valentines to be delivered to veteran nursing homes and hospitals in Arkansas and Oklahoma. Small service projects are an easy way for NAL students to remember the importance of helping others. My favorite valentine read, “I “mustache” you a question. Will you by my valentine?” with a picture of a mustache on the card!

Scholarships are being signed for the fall 2014 semester! If you would like to schedule a visit please email or call me! [email protected] or 620.251.7700 ext.2092
