Black Elk said, "Everything the power of the world does is
done in a circle." Your education is part of that circle. As
your vision of the future unfolds, we hope you will share
what you have learned with others.
Perhaps you can become a mentor to young people
struggling to get an education, just as others have been
mentors to you. Perhaps you can work in a career that
provides a critical service to your fellow tribal members.
Or, perhaps you can start a business that brings
employment to your reservation or pueblo. Regardless
of whatever form it takes, we hope you'll remember to
give back to tribe.
All of us at the American Indian College Fund and the
National Endowment for Financial Education offer you
our heartfelt congratulations and best wishes for a bright
and fulfilling future.
