Meet Dwight, Our Student Speaker for the Flame of Hope Gala!

Sep 21, 2012 | Blog, Inside the College Fund, Student Success

Every year the American Indian College Fund’s Flame of Hope Gala affords our supporters a chance to meet our students and hear how you help make a difference in their lives. We’d like to introduce you to this year’s student speaker, Dwight Carlson (Navajo), an environmental science major, two-time U.S. Forest Service student intern, firefighter, All-American cross country runner, and bull rider. Dwight is an amazing young man whose potential might not have been met without the chance to earn a college education.

Of course we hope you have the chance to meet Dwight in person at our Flame of Hope Gala! If you haven’t already registered, do so today!
