LETTER: Thank you to Yogi Crowe Scholarship Fund


Anyone who has ever tried furthering their education knows how difficult it can be for many different reasons.  I am currently enrolled at the University of Tennessee working towards my master’s of arts degree in anthropology with a concentration in archaeology.  The Yogi Crowe Memorial Scholarship is helping with my expenses which, in turn, allows me to participate in an internship class this summer semeseter.

The work I am doing during my internship helps cement our Tribe’s place in history while helping us learn more about what our ancestors were doing many years ago.  To me, my work is a tool that is helping preserve, protect and perpetuate Cherokee history and culture.

I appreciate the scholarship and the Yogi Crowe Board Members for their assistance and dedication to helping Cherokee students pursuing higher education.
