June 3, 2021
BENA -- Rozalina "Roz" Hunt-Morris hopes to grow young minds at the same place that shaped her own: Bug-O-Nay-Ge-Shig High School.
The recent graduate values her cultural heritage and plans to instill those values in future generations of Leech Lakers by obtaining a degree in early childhood education and Indigenous leadership from the Leech Lake Tribal College, with the goal of one day ending up back at the Bug-O-Nay-Ge-Shig School.
Hunt-Morris graduated as the Bug-O-Nay-Ge-Shig class of 2021 valedictorian on Thursday, May 27. For her commitment to Anishinaabe heritage, she also received the school's culture award.
