He will graduate in May of 2013 from Leech Lake Tribal College with an A.A. in liberal education. He plans to continue his education and earn a four-year degree, followed by a master’s and Ph.D. Lucas is very passionate about education and would like to have a career in education administration.

How can you describe a weekend of student leaders from across the U.S. with an intense passion to change the world? The Orientation was a phenomenal experience to meet and build connections that I'm sure will last a lifetime.
