Bailee Laducer

2016-2017 Diversity Fellow


                         My name is Bailee Jo
                         Laducer, I am 23 years
                         old, a member of the
                         Turtle Mountain Band
                         of Chippewa Indians
                         and I am the youngest
                         of two. I grew up on
                         the Turtle Mountain
                         Indian Reservation
                         located 10 miles south of the Canadian Border.  I graduated  as an honor student from Turtle Mountain Community High School in Belcourt, ND. After Graduation  I went on to complete my Associate of Science degree from Minot State University; radiology technology.


I lived on the Turtle Mountain Reservation my whole life up until November 2015 when I moved to Grand Forks, ND where I lived for about 7 months and then moved to Minot. Past employment includes horticulture at the International peace gardens, cashier at a local grocery store, and a Team member at Menards. Volunteer work has been near and dear to my heart since I was young. Back home my dad and family members started a nonprofit snowmobile club to raise money for community members who needed help with medical expenses. I was also involved with a group in high school called Students Making a Difference (SMAD). We hosted monthly blood drives, food drives, recycling events, coat drives, visits to retirement homes, and raised money for people in need.
