Posted by United Houma Nation on Friday, May 09, 2014

Last night the students, parents and the community gathered at the Houma Municipal Auditorium to honor 99 Native graduates exiting Terrebonne Parish School System this year.  Terrebonne Indian Education hosts this annual event to recognize the Native American students and encourage them on their future journey.

Guest speakers included Superintendent Phillip Martin and Ms. Jamie Billiot and Ms. Beverly LeBouef who both are teachers and tribal citizens.  The speakers shared their own journey post graduation and encouraged students to push themselves to step out of their comfort zones and seek their dreams.

The United Houma Nation would like to extend a congratulations to all the graduates and let them know that their Tribe is proud of them and has great faith in their ability to achieve beyond high school.  Also that you to all parents for instilling the value of an education on your children.  Yakoke!
