Norbert S. Hill, Jr., an Oneida tribal member originally from Wisconsin, will be the keynote speaker at the NASA Glenn Research Center's Native American Observance on Thursday, Nov. 6, at 9:30 a.m. This year's theme is "Strengthening the Spirit."
Devoting his professional career to helping Native Americans rebuild Indian communities primarily through education, Hill will speak to the contributions, contradictions and challenges of diversity in a contemporary society.
Hill is currently the Executive Director of the American Indian Graduate Center (AIGC) in Albuquerque N.M., which is the only nonprofit organization to fund graduate Indian education, and AIGC Scholars, which manages the American Indian and Alaska Native component of the Gates Millennium Scholarship initiative, funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and administered by the United Negro College Fund.
This special program is being sponsored by Glenn's Native American Advisory Council, managed through the Center's Office of Equal Opportunity Programs.
Media representatives interested in covering this employee-only event should call Lori Rachul or the Media Relations Office (216-433-2901) to be cleared through security.
