31 university students registered for summer No. 3
The other enrollees live in Montana, Nebraska, South Dakota and Wyoming. Twenty-five of the students are Native Americans and all 31 have high school diplomas, Memorial President-CEO Ruth Ziolkowski said.
Successful students earn college credits in English, math and American Indian studies. They also work in paid internships as visitor tour guides and ticket booth greeters at the Memorial during the eight-week program, June 9 to August 8.
An endowment established by Muffy and Paul Christen of Huron, S.D., funds the Crazy Horse university program. The University of South Dakota assists the Memorial in operating the accredited classes, hiring faculty and supervising the university’s Living and Learning Center.
