2018 Shareholder of the Year Nominees Sought
Doyon, Limited is currently seeking nominees for the 2018 Shareholder of the Year Awards. The nomination deadline is Friday, October 6, 2017, at 5 p.m. AKDT.
Each year at the annual meeting, Doyon presents these awards to recognize exceptional shareholders for their exemplary characteristics. The award recipients are nominated by fellow shareholders, community members and friends.
Doyon welcomes nominations for the following Shareholder of the Year Awards:
- Hannah Paul Solomon Elder of the Year recognizes an Elder, age 55 or older, who has devoted his or her life toward the betterment of Alaska Natives. The award is named in honor of the late Hannah Paul Solomon, who dedicated her life to teaching the younger generation traditional ways.
- Daaga’ Community Service recognizes a community or individual who shows strong commitment, competence and sensitivity in helping others to make their community a healthier and safer place to live, and whose accomplishments have directly affected Alaska Natives.
- The Doyon Citizen of the Year recognizes a person who has demonstrated leadership, strong commitment, competence and sensitivity in the educational and cultural survival of Alaska Natives. Recipients may be chosen for contributions in the fields of health or education, maintenance of a traditional lifestyle, or for the example they set as parents.
Due to the lack of nominations in recent years, Doyon will rotate the awards each year, with the exception of the Doyon Citizen of the Year Award, which will continue to be presented annually. Previous award recipients were Elizabeth Fleagle, Hannah Paul Solomon Elder of the Year (2016); Shirley Lee, Daaga’ Community Service (2016); and Eileen Julia Mahler, Doyon Citizen of the Year (2017).
Please note that Doyon discourages nominations received from family members, such as parents, spouses/significant others, children, siblings or grandparents. Tribal councils, village corporations and colleagues are encouraged to nominate outstanding individuals.
