Rita Asgeirsson graduated from Northwest Indian College in 2012 earning a Bachelor of Science degree in Native Environmental science. She is currently a graduate student in geography at Western Washington University.
The AA degree I got at NWIC has opened doors for me. NWIC’s Swinomish Site has impacted my life in such a good way that the people in my community recognize me as a young leader.
I have resided on the Lummi Indian Reservation all my life and have chosen NWIC to further my education because it is close to home.
