A gift through the courtesy of the Spirit of Sovereignty Fund will help Menominee Indian High School hold a Chem-Free Lock-in Party for its graduating class of 2013.

"Mr. Stevens has encouraged the College in its efforts to aid American Indian children, not only in their educational pursuits, but also in their social and cultural activities," she says. "We are happy to represent him and the Fund in making this donation."
