On Wednesday, April 10, the Haskell Alumni Association announced through their Facebook page their selection of Russell Bradley, of the Kickapoo Tribe in Kansas, for Outstanding Alumnus of 2019. In September of 2018, Bradley was removed from his position on the Kickapoo Tribal Council for “a breach of fiduciary duty” and “sexual harassment” according to a news release obtained by MSC News.
According to the Haskell Alumni Association’s press release, Bradley will be honored at a reception May 9th and invited to speak at the Haskell Commencement Ceremony on May 10th.
Bradley graduated from Haskell in 1962 and went on to serve on the Haskell Board of Regents and the Kickapoo Tribal Council.
The Indian Leader reached out to the Haskell Alumni Association and the Kickapoo Tribe in Kansas for comment and haven’t yet received a response.
