Ivan Harper
"Promoting education and assisting Onion Lake post-secondary students is not just an idea but a necessity. The OLETF is an investment in our people. I am honoured to serve as Trustee and the Board of Trustees is a disciplined and professional group overseeing the many important functions of the Trust."
Kevin Littlewolfe
"The hard work and dedication of our post - secondary students to take the next steps towards achieving their educational endeavours is very important. The OLETF was created to support and assist our students on their journey. For me to be a part of the OLETF has been very rewarding not only as a board member but also a past recipient of a OLETF Scholarship. The commitment from all those involved in this organization is remarkable and we look forward to seeing so many more of our members succeed.“ ‘Education is the new Buffalo’
Leona Carter
“I am truly honoured to be a Trustee for our Onion Lake Education Trust Fund. OLETF is a legacy that ensures our youth have educational opportunities today and in the future. I like a quote from Frederick Douglass, a Black man who said “knowledge makes a man unfit to be a slave”. For too long as First Nations people we have been slaves to the intergenerational traumas which past educational systems forced upon us. We now have possibilities for healing that comes from taking responsibility: to realize that it is you - and no one else - that creates your thoughts, your feelings, and your actions. It is education that will free us from a life of poverty to living a good life with endless opportunities. Ahkameyimok Oskayak!”
