The 2019 Stanford University Native American Graduation Dinner and Awards Presentation was held on Saturday, June 15 at Ricker Dining Hall and Courtyard. A crowd of 300 family members, students, staff, faculty and friends gathered to honor the accomplishments of more than 70 incredible indigenous students.
Each year, this event highlights the beauty of inter-generational relationships in both our home and Stanford Native communities. Families, mentors, and a growing alumni presence to support the newest members of their Native network remind us of how far we have come and how far we can go. Those in attendance were wrapped in the warmth of the sun’s rays and heart-felt sentiments for our graduating Native students.
Congratulations to the Class of 2019! Thank you for your contributions to the strength and vitality of the Stanford Native Community. We wish you the best on your future endeavors. Come back and see us soon!
