Sisseton Wahpeton College welcomes Dr. Randy Smith as its new President

by Katy Heinecke
Courier Staff Writer

Randy Smith, an enrolled member of the Choctaw Tribe of Oklahoma, has been in his position as President at the Sisseton Wahpeton College for just over a month and his plate is full to the brim with ideas, plans and projects. Born and raised in Montana, it was instilled in him by his parents at a very young age that a good education was a priority. He had plans of attending school and playing basketball during his college years, but his dad strongly encouraged education. Smith attended undergraduate school at Montana State University and saw what education can do for people and how a good education can set people apart, thus leading him to a lifetime in the education field..
