Upward Bound students attend leadership conference - Top

Two Upward Bound students at Black Hills State University will be attending a national leadership conference in Washington, D.C. this summer.

William High Bear, Eagle Butte, and Julie Jones, Fort Pierre, were selected to represent the Upward Bound Program from BHSU at the Council for Opportunity in Education Tenth Annual National Student Leadership Congress in Washington, D.C. recently.

Student representatives are participants in the Talent Search Projects and Upward Bound units of the federally funded TRIO programs. The program provides counseling and instructional services enabling students to enroll in and graduate from college. Student delegates were nominated by their project directors and selected by The Council for Opportunity in Education, which sponsors the program. The theme for this year is community service, diversity awareness, and political awareness.
