St Joseph’s Indian School Announces Graduation of Seven Seniors

Posted on: May 13, 2019

(Chamberlain, S.D.) – St. Joseph’s Indian School is proud to announce the graduation of seven seniors from its high school program, which partners with Chamberlain High School. As part of the program, students reside on St. Joseph’s campus where they receive support during their high school years and plan for the future.

Sarah Eagle Elk is the sister of Bridgette Running Horse, and her hometown is Winner. Sarah has attended St. Joseph’s for five years and was involved in several activities while attending St. Joseph’s and Chamberlain High School, including volleyball, Native American Club, Health Occupation Students of America (HOSA) and cheerleading.

Sarah plans to further her education at Fort Lewis College in Durango, Colo., or a school in South Dakota with a major in the medical field.

“My advice to younger students: try your best in your academics,” said Sarah. “High school isn’t always great, but there is no limit to what you can accomplish. Never let anyone’s negativity discourage you. Honestly, you’re living for yourself, so as long as you’re happy, your own opinion matters most.”

St. Joseph’s Indian School, an apostolate of the Congregation of the Priests of the Sacred Heart, partners with Native American children and families to educate for life – mind, body, heart and spirit.
