The graduation milestone
The graduating class of 2024 is taking one of the biggest steps in their academic careers. What’s next?

We know that almost three quarters of Native students graduate high school. And college graduates reached an achievement only 1 in 5 Native people attain by age 25.

Native America Calling devotes this show to the Native academic stars reaching a major educational milestone.
