School Board Election
Theodore Jamerson school board elections were held October 8. Mandie Wood and Bernard Strikes Enemy are representatives from the UTTC employee category. Marlene Cook and Franki Jo Baker represent UTTC college students who have youngsters attending TJES. These three will join our current board members of Joey McLeod and Arden Boxer.
TJES students took part Nov. 12 in a speed-stacking event sponsored by the World Sport Stacking Association. The tenth annual WSSA STACK UP set a new Guinness World Record for "Most People Sport Stacking at Multiple Locations in One Day."

KEEPING KIDS WARM: Jana Millner and Joe Andino of UTTC’s Land Grant programs help create an early Christmas for Adin Siegfried, left, and Cayden Bad Warrior. The two youngsters were among TJES students in grades K-7 who received warm mittens and hats just in time for winter. A donation drive coordinated by Land Grant brought-in over 140 pairs from UTTC employees, staff, students and one community group. The big ‘THANK YOU’ goes to volunteers from the Burleigh County Senior Living Center in Bismarck who hand-crocheted more than 50 sets of hats and mittens. Thank you to everyone who donated!
