Applications and Interviews: Thank you

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.

L to R: Clint Carroll, Dawni Saloli, Nancy Scott, Gary Vann, Secretary of Natural Resources Sara Hill, Anna Sixkiller. Not pictured (but present for all or part of the interview sessions): Kevin Daugherty, Phyllis Edwards, Ed Fields, Pat Gwin, Bonnie Kirk, Ryan Mackey, Nancy Rackliffe, Feather Smith-Trevino
