The Cherokee Youth Council held the 1st Annual Youth Council Awards Banquet last week. The banquet included the recognitions of youth, parents and advisors within the community.

“We are so proud of our teens and the selfless leadership they have displayed throughout the year.  I am so blessed and honored to be able to recognize their efforts,” said Sky Sampson, Cherokee Youth Council program manager. “On Behalf of the Cherokee Youth Council, we would like to say thank you all of our involved parents, advisors, and youth for continuing to support our program goals. We would also like to thank the Cherokee Preservation Foundation, Boys and Girls Club of Cherokee, and the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians for your support throughout the year. You are changing lives! Thank you!”
