Raised by 25 people in 1 month
Our daughter Taryn is one of five Navajo students who have been accepted to attend the summer enrichment program at Cushing Academy in Boston, MA. Taryn is Deeshchii'nii (Start of th Red Streaked People), born for Tł'iziłáni (Manygoats Clan). Her maternal grandfathers are Tłizi'del'chéé (RedGoat clan) and her paternal grandfathers are Táchii'nii (Red Running into Water). Cushing Academy is a prestigious college prep where students from all over the globe apply for, but very few are accepted. It is a monumental opportunity to be awarded a spot at this academy. Full tuition to attend a summer program is $9,000, and we are so close to getting her there. At Cushing, she will be studying Computer Science to get a jump start on her future goals. She is currently a 4.0 student in 8th grade at Tse'Bit'Ai Middle School in Shiprock, NM and will be attending Aztec High School in Aztec, NM in the fall. She is a very bright individual with her career goals already planned out and we are asking for help in sending our daughter to gain knowledge that will help her reach her goals. We thank you for any and all support that you can give, and we hope to achieve our current goal to raise the remaining portion needed for her tuition. Ahe'ee' Joe Family

Our names are Jeffrey Joe and Heather Begay. Our daughter, Taryn Joe, is one of five Navajo students attending Tse’Bit’Ai Middle School in Shiprock, NM. who applied and was accepted to attend Cushing Academy’s Summer Enrichment Program in Ashburnham, MA. This is a monumental opportunity for her to gain knowledge in one of their many programs ranging from Engineering and Robotics to STEM. She will join students from all over the world in a five-week summer session that will engage them in a dynamic learning environment.
As we all know, students who engage in programs such as STEM are of upmost importance because they carry that knowledge with them into tomorrows workforce. Cushing Academy’s Summer Session knows how critical it is to engage student’s creativity, spark their curiosity, provide a supportive foundation, challenge students intellectuality and sharpens their analytical thinking which will establish a lifelong pursuit of learning and excellence. In addition to education they will learn to make informed choices, respecting and valuing others, a sense of social responsibility, moral fiber, gratitude, integrity and humility as a way to become an active and contributing member of the community and society. Being in a dormitory setting is also teaching them independence, self-esteem and self-confidence which will allow them to persevere in their lifelong goals.
We would like to request the communities assistance in providing this opportunity to our child. The remaining tuition needed to attend this prestigious academy is $3,000. Any amount you wish to sponsor would be greatly appreciated by ourselves, as well as our daughter. As stated before, this is a momentous opportunity for her to explore and gain knowledge that is not offered on our reservation.
