Native American Scholarship Winners Are Leaders

Native American students Roni Rae Moore and John Redday each won scholarships of $4,000 from the Mark K. Ulmer Memorial Native American Scholarship Foundation to continue their education.

Moore, a member of the Lower Brule Sioux Tribe, is attending South Dakota State University in Brookings, South Dakota and is enrolled in a pre-pharmacy program.

Redday, a member of the Sisseton-Wahpeton Sioux Tribe, is studying business at North Dakota State University in Fargo, North Dakota.

According to a press release from the foundation, both students are active in sports, school and community affairs, and are “outstanding students, demonstrating leadership in many ways.”

“Roni and John embody the determination and commitment to achieving a degree in higher education that was a part of the base upon which our foundation was started,” said Samuel K. Ulman, foundation chairman. “We are pleased to make these awards and are confident that they will achieve their goals.”

The foundation was formed by Mr. and Mrs. Samuel K. Ulmer after their son Mark was killed in an accident in Fraser, Colorado in 1988. Mark was an attorney working with the Department of Housing and Urban Development. Before his passing, Mark and an associate, Dom Nessi, were instrumental in starting the All West Native American Basketball Tournament in 1986. The last tournament was held March 25-27 in Lakewood, Colorado, and was the 26th annual event. It was also where Moore and Redday were presented their scholarship certificates.
