SweetGrass Trading Company honored local graduates of Winnebago High School with small gifts of white sage, a Tanka bison bar and congratulatory letters. Forty-one students graduated from Winnebago High on Sunday, May 16.
The last year has been difficult for many students due to COVID-19. SweetGrass employees wanted to honor the students with a gift and acknowledge all the hard work and resilience they’ve shown this year.
We support Native students who will become future leaders in Indian Country. We applaud the determination and resilience students have shown this year and wish all graduating students success and happiness in their future endeavors.
SweetGrass also encourages graduating seniors and current undergraduates to apply for our Scholarship program. We will be awarding up to three $1,000 scholarships for students who are an enrolled member of a Tribe and meet our criteria. Applications are due on June 4.
