Some of my community involvement has been captured in the local newspapers and on the evening televised news.
Native American Gathering
I started the Native American Gathering three years ago as a way to foster a sense of belonging for students, staff, faculty, alumni, and community members. At the first Native American Gathering (2015), we had about 50 people attend. By the second year (2016), we had about 1,000 people in attendance. For the third year (2017), we recorded 1,193 people in attendance. Below are some newspaper articles about the importance, purpose, and hope for the Native American Gathering. Click on each date to read the full-text of the related article.
