Executive Director of the White House Initiative on American Indian and Alaska Native Education
He has graciously accepted our invitation to speak with our MCC students.
Mr. William Mendoza is an influential person who embodies the struggle and adversity that American Indian students face within higher education. Growing up on the Pine Ridge and Rosebud Sioux reservations in South Dakota, his continuous perseverance led him to become one of the most successful individuals within the American Indian community.
I hope you all make time to be a part of this event. Light dinner will be provided. Please join Aii & ISO in welcoming Mr. Mendoza to MCC.
Those that are a member of the Hopi Tribe are welcome to meet with a representative about scholarship applications and any other questions you might have pertaining to your tribe.
