2018 Recipients

Raily Reed (Navajo)

Railey is Navajo and graduated from Farmington High School. He will be attending the University of Utah in Salt Lake City in the fall. He aims to study civil engineering because his favorite subjects in school are math, drawing, and science. He has participated in several extracurricular activities including piano, robotics, and art contests. He also played basketball, baseball, and ran cross country in high school. Railey currently works as an intern at an engineering company and has worked on irrigation and water projects on the Navajo Nation. He is very interested in giving back to his community by using his engineering degree to improve infrastructure on the reservation.

NativeVision is grateful to Jack Katz and Panama Jack
for sponsoring Railey’s scholarship!
