Does Our Commitment End After Graduation: Inaugural HEEF Speaker Series
Tribal leaders, departments, employers, educators and community members are invited to participate as we engage in discussion on the challenges our students face in returning to work for the Hopi people and what responsibilty do we as a Hopi community have to these students who we have invested in.
Support Hopi Students by Joining the 2013 HEEF Alumni Challenge
Launching in 2005, through the collective effort of 105 alumni, $28,000 has been contributed to the HEEF. "One of the intended goals of the Challenge was to create an avenue for Hopi alumni to give back and help the next student. Along the way, they have been joined by others and is a great example of community giving and the value of reciprocity," said HEEF Executive Director LuAnn Leonard. She added, "supporting campaigns such as the alumni challenge, helps the HEEF provide direct support to Hopi college students. For example, during the Spring 2012 semester, funds from the Challenge helped to fund 123 students attending 42 different institutions in 13 states with 23 Hopi students receiving their degree at the end of the term."
