Double Major in Native American Studies & Environmental Studies
We love you Jennie!!! Congratulations!!!
I'm so proud of you and all the work you've done over the past four years. Thanks for being my fly in buddy. We've had so much fun time together - trips, pre-o, INC, homecomings, cabin camping, hanging out at the NAH, suffering through Calloway's classes. I'm so excited to see what you do next in life.
Love you always,
Jennie!! Can't possibly SIX YEARS since i first met you in Sedona. It has been such a joy having you here. Thank you so much for all you have contributed over these years, in so many big and small ways. Congratulations to you, be well & please keep in touch!! -steven

Awesome…This is your moment to celebrate because you dared to achieve your goals. It also means that you strived to turn ambition into action and reality. I'm happy to hear that another young YAN tribal student has worked hard and you have truly earned your degree. Even if you can't attend a traditional graduation ceremony, host your own among family and friends and celebrate your accomplishments with your best friends.
Native American Studies majors develop specific skills that are applicable to lots of different careers. These skills include foundational knowledge of American Indian policy, history, literature, arts, film, & environmental issues, plus a broad understanding of cross-cultural and diversity issues; and expertise in American Indian affairs, cultural diversity, & minority perspectives. Awesome because NAS was my favorite studies and I'm happy to hear you invested in these awesome courses as well!
I'm confident that you've had amazing opportunities and your new degree and accomplishments promises to bring even more chances for exciting experiences in the future. I hope you'll find a way to give back to your community in the future because the YAN needs new vision and leadership from the younger generation!
I look forward to celebrating with you and family in the near future…in the meantime, give yourself a big hug and remember that education is something that no one can take away from you and is something you have for the rest of your life!
Congratulations Jennie! You have accomplished so much at your time at Dartmouth, and I'm so thankful that I had the privilege of meeting and befriending you! I have so much respect for you - you are outspoken and steadfast in your beliefs, and you always take the time to engage with others. I know you'll go far - I just hope that we can keep in touch every now and then. I hope that you have a fantastic graduation because you deserve nothing less!

My family and I are so proud of you and your accomplishments! You have been my greatest friend and role model while being at Dartmouth. I will always be grateful that you were my freshman trips leader! Without your valuable insight, I would not be where I am today. Thank you! You are a beautiful, strong Indigenous matriarch and I can't wait to see what you accomplish in the future! Whether that is something in teaching, advocacy, or environmentalism, your voice deserves to be heard and will impact change for Indigenous people. My family and I will always be here to support you and we wish you nothing but the best in your future endeavors!
With lots of love,
The Snyder Family

Congratulations on this big day JDawg you truly deserve it. You're probably the most hard working, dedicated and empathetic person I know. Keep doing what you do and being who you are and you'll make this world a better place.
I am so grateful to have been able to know you these past four years. From being your mentee during pre-O to our late night fry bread contests this winter, you have brought so much guidance and joy to my life. Being able to see the grounded and unwavering way you've approached your classes gave me the motivation to face my own so many times. And seeing the incredible love and care you show your friends and our community has always reminded me why we are here. I'm going to miss seeing your smiling face everyday but I know that you are going accomplish so many great things! Congratulations for everything you've achieved and thank you for everything you've given!!
Miss you! and talk to you soon!
Graduating on my birthday, no less! I can't tell you how proud we are of you - and of your accomplishments. It was obvious that you were destined to excel. I wish you lots of happiness and success as you travel through the next part of your life. Enjoy the journey! Much love from Dana - and all of Verde Valley School!
