The Board of Trustees of Leech Lake Tribal College has announced that Dr. Donald Day, Director of the American Indian Resource Center at Bemidji State University, has been selected as the next President of the College, effective August 13. He will succeed Dr. Ginny Carney, who is retiring in August after more than a decade of service at LLTC.
In announcing the appointment of Day, Rose Robinson, Chair of the Leech Lake Tribal College Board of Trustees, said, "On behalf of the LLTC Board of Trustees, I extend a warm welcome to Dr. Day. We are all looking forward to working with Don as he steps into this leadership role at an entity that is so important to our community."
Day's career in education spans more than 35 years, and has covered a wide range of roles including academic counseling, teaching, research, student services, curriculum development, and administration, including a successful stint as president of Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College.  Day mentioned that one of his proudest accomplishments was gaining approval from the Higher Learning Commission for FDLTCC to offer its first ever four-year degree program - a big leap forward for any community college.
"Leech Lake Tribal College is an awesome institution with strong academic programs that are grounded in Anishinaabeg values" Day said.
