CNO and SAP Honored by AIGC at Gathering of Nations Reception
The American Indian Graduate Center (AIGC) partnered with the Gathering of Nations to hold a reception "Celebrating Education and Tribes”. The event was held in Albuquerque, NM on Saturday,
April 30th, 2011 at the Isotopes Ball Park. Here AIGC presented four
awards to recognize two alumni, as well as an outstanding tribe that generously supports higher education and a corporate organization, for their efforts in higher education to make a difference in Indian country.
The Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma was the tribe selected this year, based on not only the Scholarship Advisement Program and its commitment to promoting the importance of higher education and adequately preparing students for college, but also for the CNO’s regular and generous philanthropic support of organizations and programs that focus on educating youth and generally improving communities.
