Bismarck, ND - David Gipp will be honored Tuesday by his peers for 30 years of service as president of the United Tribes Technical College. The school has gone from providing education to just a few students to over 1,100 now. Gipp says this is only the beginning.

"We're going to grow some more from over 1,100 students to probably serving 2,000 students in the course of the next three to four years, and we're looking at developing and creating a whole new campus to the south of us."

Gipp says the college relies almost entirely on federal funding, so the last six years has been some of the most difficult because the Bush administration left the school out of its yearly budgets, a problem that had to be addressed in Congress.

Gipp notes that the college has been a boost not only to the community through the jobs provided, but also as an economic boost to the entire state.

"For every dollar that is invested, there is a 20 dollar return based upon what students do once they graduate. They go out and get into tax paying jobs and they themselves become productive citizens."

The reception is set for is set for Wednesday, May 2, beginning at 2 p.m. in the Jack Barden Student Life and Technology Center.
