Comanche Nation College Closing

Posted: Updated:
LAWTON, Oklahoma -

The Comanche Nation College in Lawton is closing its doors for good at the end of the month due to lack of funding. 

This past week, leaders talked about ways to keep the college open but tribe officials rejected their proposals.

"You are taking away their ability to learn about native culture and religion and values that come with it,” said graduate Chelsea Yackeyonny.

Leaders say staff at the college will continue to be employed by the tribe.
