New faces at Leech Lake Tribal College


Leech Lake Tribal College, located on the Leech Lake Indian Reservation, 3 miles northwest of Cass Lake, will enter the new academic year with several new staff members.

Sharon Marcotte will be LLTC’s Dean of Instruction, Nadine Bill will fill the Dean of Students position, Mandy Schram will be the new Registrar and Steve Hagenah has accepted the position of Law Enforcement Program Coordinator.

Marcotte was LLTC’s TRiO program director in 2007-08, and returns to the college after a stint as principal of St. Paul American School in Beijing, China. Marcotte has a doctoral degree in educational leadership and nearly 20 years of work experience in education in diverse settings.

Bill, a member of the Lummi nation, started her career at Northwest Indian College in Bellingham, Wash. Bill later returned to NWIC as the director of institutional research before joining the LLTC staff.

While LLTC is a new setting for Schram, the area is familiar to her. Schram is originally from Blackduck and earned her Bachelor’s Degrees in criminal justice and sociology from Bemidji State University before attaining a Master’s Degree at the University of Wisconsin-Platteville. Schram has also taught online and classroom courses in criminal justice, psychology and sociology.

LLTC’s new law enforcement program coordinator, Hagenah, is a familiar face with a new role. Hagenah grew up in Cass Lake and graduated from BSU before embarking on a law enforcement career spanning nearly four decades, including almost 30 years as a Bureau of Criminal Apprehension special agent. A longtime adjunct law enforcement faculty member at LLTC, he now takes on the role of directing the development and growth of the entire program.
