Nebo’s Title VI Performing Art, Native American Indian, students were involved in fundraising for Navajo elders. The program raised $12,000 selling Navajo rugs at this event. Adopt-a-Native-Elder (ANE) is a good partner to Nebo’s Indian Education program. ANE provides school supplies packed in backpacks and also Christmas gifts for Nebo students.
John Aldrich said, “Eileen, your dancers were such a wonderful part of the presentations on Monday evening. I would like to honor what you have done to preserve your culture among the urban Navajo families and especially the children who come under your influence in the Nebo school district. They are the beneficiaries of a very special talent, and the dancing on Monday evening showed the beautiful results of your dedicated work.”
