Article by Kimberly Barrows


White Clay Language Immersion School student intern Walt Bad Road-Mount
Thanks to Project Success, Aaniiih Nakoda College students have the opportunity to participate in the new ANC/Project Success Internship Program. Beginning in the fall of 2017, eligible ANC students are able to apply for internships that match the degree they are seeking. There are also transportation funds available for the students to assist them in getting to and from their work site. This grant is designed to assist students who have a financial need be more successful in college, while helping them obtain career-related paid internships and gain real world experience.

This semester several student interns were placed at various work sites both on and off campus. Desmond Grant is working with the ANC CIS Department, Kaye Brown is working with IHS PHN, Jessica Parker is working with 477 TANF, Anthony Main is working with the ANC Welding Department, Donavon "Meeks" Bullinsight is working with the FBIC Buffalo Program, and our featured student this month, Walt BadRoad Mount is working with the White Clay Language Immersion School. Walt is an American Indian Studies major who has a passion for his Aaniiih culture and is very involved with learning and living in a traditional way. Walt was placed at the White Clay Language Immersion School where he has been assisting with daily activities. Since he started working with the teachers and students at the Immersion School, Walt is now thinking of also going into education as he has found a new passion working within his culture and also working with students. We are excited to see where his studies will take him.
