I’m back from my travels

I’m back from my travels. Thanks to all our staff who filled in as guest bloggers during the days I was gone.

Our meetings in California focused on ways to reach out to and work with our donors. I also had some wonderful days of visiting relatives in the area, and enjoyed sunshine and warmer weather than South Dakota offers this time of year.

I next traveled with staff and two high school girls to Waukesha, Wisconsin for a couple of donor appreciation luncheons. Six of my SCJ community members who live in the Milwaukee area came to the luncheon on Saturday, and helped fill people in on the work here in South Dakota and what we’re about throughout the world.  

Shay and LaToya did a great job telling folks about their activities at St. Joseph’s, and their hopes and dreams for the future. In our free time we did a little touring, and since we were in the big city, some shopping. I went into more dress, purse and jewelry stores than I’ve ever been in, but it was entertaining and educational to see what caught a teenage girl’s fancy. The students were impressed by the vastness of Lake Michigan, and the vastness of a big city filled with so many different neighborhoods and opportunities.

At St. Joseph's Indian School, our privately-funded programs for Lakota (Sioux) children in need have evolved over 89 years of family partnership, experience and education. Because of generous friends who share tax-deductible donations, Native American youth receive a safe, stable home life; individual counseling and guidance; carefully planned curriculum based on Lakota culture and individual student needs and tools to help build confidence, boost self-esteem and improve cultural awareness. All of this helps children to live a bright, productive, possibility-filled future.
