We never know the path others are traveling

It saddens my heart that so many are sick and so many are dying. May we at this time pause and have a moment of silence for those that we have lost. They are our family members, friends

r A big congratulations to Taylor Eddie who is an eleventh-grader in Nebo School District at Maple Mountain High in Spanish Fork. She is a recipient of the 2019 Dream Starter Grant for the Running Strong Organization.

Each year Billy Mills, an American Indian Olympic Gold Medalist, awards $10,000 to American Indian organizations and communities. Many American Indians apply for this grant with the hopes they will be able to incorporate their vision or dream into a specific American Indian organization or community. This year, Taylor Eddie’s dream was selected by the Running Strong Organization.

Taylor’s dream for incorporating entrepreneurship into the Title VI Program:r”Taylor’s dream is to introduce students to agriculture as a business. She plans to expand her farm with gardens and animals, and teach youth in her community about animal husbandry, the basics of business management, and the importance of agriculture to Native communities.”-Direct quote from the Running Strong Organization website.

Eileen Quintana, the Program Director for the Nebo Title VI Program said, “I am so proud of Taylor Eddie! She came up with an incredible dream of introducing students to raising livestock and starting a business in agriculture. This is the second Dreamstarter coming out of Nebo School District Indian Education, which is quite a feat since they only pick 10 Dream Starters across the nation in one year. This grant brings in $10,000 to Nebo Title VI Indian Education program to work with students in learning how to start a business. She will attend a Dreamstarter Academy in Washington DC, which will train her on entrepreneurship, public speaking and community networking. Taylor Eddie will have one year to complete her project.”

Taylor Eddie exemplifies the qualities necessary to be a leader among her peers and is definitely a role model for other American Indian students in her school and community. The Title VI Staff and Parent Committee are excited to see what activities, field trips, and projects she integrates into the Nebo Title VI Program. Congrats, Taylor Eddie! And a huge thank you to Running Strong Organization for this wonderful opportunity to strengthen American Indian Organization like ours.
