Patrick Willie is a local American Indian who Hoop Dances competitively. He was taught many past Title VI students how to hoop dance and currently helps our Title VI Parent Committee with regalia projects. He volunteered his time and talent to 27 different schools in honor of Native American Heritage Month in November 2017. Some of the schools he volunteered at were in Nebo School District, primarily at Elementary schools. He does not have his own transportation, so he biked (200 plus miles) to a majority of these presentations.
He presented at Riverview Elementary during the month of November to the Kindergarten classes. A current kindergartener who attended Patrick's presentation said, "It was really cool", and she went on to add, "My whole class was smiling while he danced." It's wonderful to see positive role models making a difference in the education of our youth.
