Who Comes to Eastern?

It’s just a short drive from MARY KIM TITLA'S childhood home to the newsroom at KPNX Channel 12 in Phoenix—but it seems a world away. Mary Kim, a member of the San Carlos Apache Tribe, majored in journalism at Eastern and was a member of the Native American Club, the newspaper and yearbook staffs, and on the pom pom squad “It’s up to you to make your experience enjoyable wherever you go, but it’s easy at Eastern because there are so many opportunities.” According to Mary Kim, she really enjoyed her experience at EAC. “I learned good study habits, and the instructors helped students feel good about themselves.” Today, Mary Kim—who earned a BA in journalism at the University of Oklahoma and an MA in mass communications at ASU—is an award-winning reporter. She also serves as a board member of the Heard Museum and the United National Indian Tribal Youth. And she takes the EAC message home. “Anyone can fit in. There’s such a diverse group of students at Eastern. When I go back to the reservation, I try to show the children that, if I can do it, they can do it, too.”
