Ketchikan Chapter T&H Delegates
By Robert A. Sanderson Jr.


September 07, 2006

THANK YOU to the Ketchikan Chapter Tlingit and Haida Delegates for the donation of funds help in assisting with school supplies for our children. Before school started this year; the Local Chapter of Tlingit and Haida was able to contribute enough funds to help pay for many items necessary for our most needy children to attend school. Items donated were paper, pens, pencils, erasers, compasses, protractors, crayons, markers, colored pencils, pencil sharpeners, Kleenex, sanitizers, folders, index cards, binder pockets for pencils, etc.

The Ketchikan T&H Delegates would like to express the importance of education and our responsibility as a community to continue to support our children in every possible way we can in their opportunities for a high-quality education.

I would like to thank our local delegation for all their hard work in the efforts in assisting our children. The delegates are Helene Simpson, Roberta L. Hull, Andre Skip LeCornu, Barbara L. Fields, Holly Churchill-Burns, Martha Johnson, and Merle Nancy Hawkins. (A special thank you to T&H tribal member Rick Fields for his assistance in shopping for supplies and to CCTHITA members Bonnie Morris and Medicinewind Chaney for distributing the school supplies).

The T&H delegates will continue to work hard for the betterment of the Ketchikan T&H Tribal Citizens. We encourage all tribal members to attend our meetings on the first Thursday of every month. Notice will be located in the brevities of the Ketchikan Daily News.

It is an honor to work with such a dedicated group of people. Thank you for all that you do!
