Skyler, senior, Harding High School

“My plans after high school are to go to Dartmouth College and get my bachelors degree. I know I want to study pre-med, but I also want to study writing and Native American studies. I also want to study psychology and sociology. So my plan is to go there and then figure out what to focus on. I’ve been studying the Ojibwe language and history and culture since I was in kindergarten. It’s always something that I’ve cared about ever since I started at American Indian Magnet school... I think it’s just important to know where you came from and the history of what your people are, your language and your culture. It’s a personal thing for me.” -- Skyler is a senior at Harding Senior High with a full scholarship to Dartmouth College, an Ivy League school.
