On December 2nd, the Leech Lake Tribal College family lost one of its brightest stars when Leann Dick, Valedictorian of the 2009 class, passed away after a tragic accident. After graduating from LLTC at the top of her class, Leann had transferred to the University of Minnesota-Morris and was pursuing two of her great passions, majoring in Biology and American Indian Studies. While off-campus, Leann fell on a flight of stairs and suffered a traumatic injury that claimed her life the next day. In her time here at Leech Lake Tribal College, we were fortunate to watch Leann blossom from a shy girl, unsure of her abilities or what direction to take, into a vibrant, confident leader. She was loved and admired by her fellow students as well as by the faculty and administration here at LLTC, and she loved the college deeply. At the request of Leann's family and friends, we are establishing a memorial scholarship fund in her name. This fund will provide scholarship support to LLTC students in the STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) disciplines. Please support this fund, and help us pass on Leann's legacy of passion for both science and for Ojibwe culture.
