Fall 2013 Community Leader Award was presented to:
LeRoy Adams, Jr., Yakama Nation Wildlife Program Manager
Thank you for your leadership within the Yakama Nation Wildlife Program, which is focused on responsibility and stewardship, serving as protectors of the land and its valuable resources. We applaud the ways in which your leadership supports natural resource management that is scientifically-based but culturally-informed, and are grateful that you are a role model for students who will be the next generation to lead the way in environmental protection and the health and well-being of natural resources, people, and culture.
