Many years ago, Sister Loyola Edelen, SBS, would travel with students to host a fun evening dinner at St. Joan of Arc in Phoenix, AZ. Upon her passing in December 2008, the dinners ended abruptly. Many supporters of St. Michael Indian School reside in Phoenix and the surrounding areas and today generously support the school through the Arizona Tax Credit programs, parish partnerships like the Adopt-A-Family Christmas program and monetary gifts of support to assist the annual fund of the school. St. Michael Indian School was founded by Saint Katharine Drexel in 1902. The doors opened in December of 1902 welcoming the first students to educational opportunities in their local communities. 120 years later, SMIS is a leader in education by educating preschool through high school students in St. Michaels, Arizona on the Navajo Nation.
