UTTC Student of the Year Geri D. Fischer BISMARCK, ND - Geri D. Fischer, a student in Office Technology, is Student of the Year at United Tribes Technical College. The daughter of James and Ramona Fischer of Bismarck, she is an enrolled member of the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe, Eagle Butte, SD.

Fischer graduates from UTTC on May 7 with a perfect record of attendance and a 4.0 grade point average. She is a single mother of two beautiful daughters Dakotah and Breanna.

"I'm blessed to have supportive parents," said Fischer. "And my two daughters have kept me reaching for my goals."

Fischer's awards and accomplishments at United Tribes include being elected Student Senate representative for the Office Technology vocation; named Student of the Week and Student of the Month; named to the UTTC President's List and the National Dean's List; received the All American Scholar's Award; and was named to Who's Who Among Students in American Junior Colleges.

Fischer was named the first recipient of the Celebrate 2000 Legacy Scholarship sponsored by Bismarck businesses, the Bismarck Tribune, Medcenter One, KFYR-TV, Dan's Supermarket, United Printing and Bank Center First.

While attending classes, Fischer tutored other students 10 hours per week in the Office Technology vocation, and in general math and accounting. She also volunteered weekly for Office Technology instructors by correcting papers, typing letters and answering telephones.

"I recommend United Tribes because of the great instructors for Office Technology," she said. "Not only are they good teachers but they became friends as well."

After graduation Fischer plans to remain in Bismarck.
