Feeding families for the holidays

Commissioned Officers Association donates to student organization outreach efforts

OKMULGEE, Oklahoma — The College of the Muscogee Nation Tribal Leadership Circle accepted a donation from the East Central Oklahoma Commissioned Officers Association to go toward their holiday food drive Dec. 10 at CMN in Okmulgee, Oklahoma.

MCN Department of Health COA Lieutenant Commanders Amanda Wyatt and Lacey Blankenship presented the student lead organization with a check to help purchase food items in an effort to support CMN students and their loved ones during the holiday season.

“This opportunity lets students know they have support from their tribal community, highlights the new student organization and their own outreach activities and maybe even invite other hospitable donations,” Wyatt said.

TLC was formed to create an opportunity to expand culture, education, community and fellowship among the student body.

The institution’s faculty and staff held a food drive last year in partnership with MCN National Council donating hams to families.

“I thought this year would be a good opportunity for the students of this organization to lead it,” CMN Instructor Caci Biggs said.

She said CMN’s goal is to provide ten students and their family a meal on Christmas and will be accepting donations through Dec. 17.
