Prestigious Appointment for UTTC Student
December 16, 2015

Margaret Landin is a student in the Teacher Education program and also serves as the president of Student Professional Education Council.

When I catch up with her, she’s explaining to fellow students at a pre-service student-teacher’s meeting how exciting it is to have an opportunity for the mini Relay-for-Life again in 2016. Last year, UTTC conducted its first on-campus organizing for the run-up to the annual event that raises funds to fight cancer. Thirteen UTTC teams raised over $7,500. The campus effort supported Bismarck’s Relay-For-Life in June and earned a mention in the national Relay-for-Life magazine. As fundraising starts again for 2016, seven teams have signed up.

After taking a few pics of Margaret, she tells me how much she enjoys her time at United Tribes and how she hopes all student teachers just “go for it”.

Margaret is talking about her nomination and selection to a national advisory committee of the influential industry organization, the National Education Association (NEA). She’s the first student in the state of North Dakota to be selected to serve on their national advisory committee. Nationwide only nine students are selected out of 50,000 student members.

Margaret Landin was appointed to a prestigious NEA advisory committee.
