The National Native American Honor Society Banquet recognized students who earned a 4.0 GPA during the school year.

In 1982, Dr. Dukepoo founded the National Native American Honors Society, to encourage Native students to strive for greater success in education.

We congratulate each students for their outstanding academic performance.” stated Harrisen DeClay, WMAT Education Director.
