Award-winning director, writer, scholar—and TMCC alumnus—Myrton Running Wolf has come a long way from when he enrolled in his first course at TMCC in 1992.

At that time, he had just put a college football career behind him, and returned home to attend the University of Nevada, Reno and work at the Minden-based nonprofit, Rite of Passage. Myrton knew he was good with numbers, and was seeking a Bachelor of Science Degree in Mathematics, with a Chemistry minor. However, he found himself in need of a speech class and enrolled in TMCC’s Fundamentals of Acting—a fateful decision that would have lasting impact.
