Congrats to Freddy Gipp, 25, Apache Tribe of Oklahoma, for being named a Dreamstarter! Olympic Gold medalist Billy Mill’s Running Strong for American Indian Youth organization provides grants to community non-profits who will mentor young Dreamstarters and work with them to implement a project inspired by the young person’s dream for her or his community. This year UNITY will work closely with Dreamstarter Freddy Gipp to help turn his dream into a reality.
What better way to start off the school year, than in service and empowering others to reach for their dreams! UNITY’s 25 Under 25 awardee Lance Sanchez joined ASU’s Office of American Indian Initiatives team to participate in this year’s Tribal Nations Tour last week. Former National UNITY Council Executive Committee member Lance Sanchez, Tohono O’odham Nation, recently graduated from Tohono O’odham Community College and is starting this Fall Semester as a transfer Junior double majoring in America Indian Studies and Community Advocacy and Social Policy.
