Itsvyalihelitseha (we are grateful to you all). Thanks to all those who applied to the land education program, and to the finalists who participated in the interview sessions on April 18-20. I was grateful to be able to meet such an inspiring group of Cherokees! We received 20 applications in total, and we interviewed 10 finalists, from which we will select 5 students to make up the program cohort. No doubt, this will be a difficult task. Nevertheless, we look forward to planning the kickoff meeting this summer.
