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.

Treyah Sitting Bear is the daughter of Sharisse Sitting Bear, and Mission is her hometown. Treyah has attended St. Joseph’s for six years. She was involved in several activities while attending St. Joseph’s, including basketball, dancing, softball and cheerleading. While attending Chamberlain High School, she played basketball and was a member of the Native American Club.

Treyah plans to attend the University of South Dakota or Black Hills State University to study art education and coaching.

“My advice for younger students (and I know you hear this a lot but trust me, you need to do it) is do your work. Get it done!” said Treyah. “Do not fall behind in school. If you plan on doing sports, please take that advice. Don’t forget to have fun, though. Before you know it, you’ll be a senior and wonder why the years went so fast. It does go by fast, so be involved in things, have fun and take advantage of opportunities.”

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.
