    The road to a university degree is never easy, but for Eddie Wolf Child (BA '14, BEd '15), it was well worth the effort.  I knew the way to a better quality of life for me and my family was education,” says Eddie, who began his studies at the U of L in 2008 in the First Nations’ Transition Program. From the Siksika Nation reserve, Eddie credits his success to the support of his community, his role models and his sheer, steadfast determination. In 2014, he graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Native American Studies and in 2015 with a Bachelor of Education.

    “In life, we all go through struggles, he says. “But to overcome your struggles, you have to put in the work.” 

     It’s a lesson he’s now passing on to his students at Old Sun Community College. “I’m so happy to be home in my community teaching my people,” he says. And in just a few short months, he’s already making a difference.

    “At Sun College’s graduation, the valedictorian said, ‘I would not be standing here today if it wasn’t for Eddie Wolf Child.’ In that moment, I knew, I’m really doing something.”
