Oelrichs High School
Denato Two Bulls will receive a $1,000 Golden West Scholarship for 2019.
A 2019 graduate of Oelrichs High School, Denato has attended Oelrichs School since Kindergarten. His parents are Galen and Floydine Two Bulls and they live in Oglala.
Denato activities include football, basketball, track, NHS and the welding team. He plans on attending Western Dakota Technical Institute to pursue his passion for welding.
Coming from a community overrun with poverty, violence and drug use, welding has opened up many doors for Denato and has kept him on the right track in life. He wants to get his degree in welding so he can proudly build a life and career. Denota also want to build his own shop in his community, so the youth can have somewhere safe to go and learn a new skill. Denota believes that his dream shop will encourage young people to steer clear of trouble and, hopefully, spark their interest in welding.
