Congratulations to Delores Gabbard who was just named one of this year's 2021 Human Rights Award winners by the Moorhead Human Rights Commission! Congrats on this well-deserved recognition! 🧡🖤 Continue reading to see an excerpt from her nomination below. #SpudPride “Delores Gabbard has worked as a Native American Liaison for Moorhead Public Schools for many years and as a volunteer in the community for Indigenous events. Delores has devoted her life to meeting the needs of Native youth in the community. This includes anything from educational programming to making sure our youth have warm coats, shoes, and school supplies. She connects with entire families, because students’ needs are best met if the entire family’s needs are met. She provides cultural opportunities for kids in the community and school district. She has spent hours personally sewing regalia for students and connecting kids to resources in the community. Her heart is huge and she does not turn anyone away who needs help.”
Yearbooks are the perfect blast into the past! Check out these Spuds from the 1975 yearbook crew. #TBT
