Two chosen as state delegates to leadership institute
Kaitlin Walker, a math teacher at Bottineau High School, was one of 21 state delegates chosen for the inaugural class at the Western Governors’ Leadership Institute in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, on July 24-26. The program was developed by the Western Governors’ Foundation, the philanthropic arm of the Western Governors’ Association, to recognize and reward the effective exercise of leadership by young adults across the West.
Kara Azure, an enrolled member of the Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa and a marketing intern for the Turtle Mountain Community College Bookstore in Belcourt, was one of three tribal delegates and 21 state delegates chosen for the inaugural class of the Western Governors’ Leadership Institute.
“The Western Governors’ Leadership Institute has been an amazing opportunity to network with like-minded peers and leaders from many fields,” said Walker. “Having discussions with experts and leaders has made this experience one to remember, and I’m excited to take what I learned from this experience to continue to develop leadership skills back in my community.”
