Native Studies Students Cap Year with Shakopee Visit
To be eligible, students had to meet a GPA requirement, attend 50% of Native Student Service activities and remain in good standing with the university.
Donis Drappeau, assistant program coordinator at the Native American Healthcare Scholars Program, believes the trip is a good way to expose students to government officials, business leaders and community members.
“It’s a way for students to celebrate their success and continue to form relationships with their peers,” said Drappeau.
Students will have the chance to tour businesses in the Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community, visit the Science Museum of Minnesota and enjoy the Mall of America.
