Office of the President old

Yá’át’ééh – Welcome

It is hard to imagine if the founders of this great college could have envisioned the challenges faced and overcome. We have grown from a two-year college into a four-year college. Just like the growth of the previous 49 years, the next 50 years will be just as exciting.

“The Holy People blessed this College and protect it.”

Ahe’hee’,

Charles Monty Roessel, Ed.D.
President
