SpectrUM Tent At Arlee Celebration Gets National Recognition

Posted: Updated:

The University of Montana's SpectrUM Discovery Area and its partners on the Flathead Indian Reservation are getting national recognition.

The groups received honorable mention in the Noyce Foundation's Bright Lights Community Engagement Awards competition. SpectrUM's tent at the Arlee pow wow is one of the efforts being recognized. SpectrUM works with reservation's to bring K-12 science, technology, health and other programming.

Polson doctor, Leeanna Muzquiz said growing up on a reservation, there's not a lot of resources for teens looking to enter the medical field.

"Really what we're working to do is promote that idea they can be health care professionals, and that it's really important to touch the people who are in college, in high school, and in elementary school and even before," Muzquiz said.

The SpectrUM tent is set up at the pow wow from noon to 7 p.m. until it ends Sunday.
