The Northern Arizona Native-American Foundation (TNANAF) recently selected Yadira Caballero as its annual scholarship recipient. On Wednesday May 30 at a Kinlani Bordertown Dormitory fucntion at Fort Tuthill County Park, Yadira received her $2,000 scholarship check from Brian Buckley, the Executive Director of TNANAF and Constance Benally, a TNANAF Board Member.

Yadira, the daughter of Bertha Webb of Grand Canyon, recently graduated from Flagstaff High School where she resided in the Kinlani Bordertown Dormitory. In the fall she will matriculate to the University of Arizona in Tucson, where she hopes to major in Business and Finance.

Yadira graduated Flagstaff Hig School with a 3.4 Grade Point Average. Her Navajo Language teacher, Loren Hudson, wrote, "Yadira shows great potential and is very determined when it comes to academics. She succeeds in all she does and is a positive figure in her community and among her peers." An athlete on the cross country and basketabll teams, Yadira also was chosen to attend the National Young Leadership Conference in Washington, D.C. last summer.

Applications for the scholarship were sent to Sinagua High School, Coconino High School, Flagstaff High School, Tuba City High School, Hopi High School, and to the Havasupai Tribe. TNANAF is based in Flagstaff. For more information contact Brian Buckley at this:
