2018 Ivalu Scholarship Award

Arctic Education Foundation (AEF) is proud to announce the 2018 Ivalu Scholarship winner, Iris Lane of Point Hope, Alaska. Iris Lane is the daughter of Clark Lane Sr., and Darlene Lane; her grandparents are Amos and Suuyuk Lane, and Andrew and Irene Tooyak

Iris is currently enrolled at the University of Alaska Fairbanks where she is attending the Law Enforcement Academy and will continue to pursue a degree in criminal justice to advance in the law enforcement community as an investigator. Once Iris has obtained her endorsement as a law enforcement officer she plans to pursue a degree in criminal justice.

Iris shared, “I believe my calling is strong in this field because there is little Inupiaq representation in the State of Alaska.” She also plans to do motivation speaking, as she see’s an opportunity to help her people by speaking life into their lives. We wish Iris the best of luck in the Law Enforcement Academy! Aarigaa! Kiita!

The Ivalu Scholarship was created to honor eligible applicants who are making noteworthy and influential contributions to their community through their community cultural service commitment of their personal time to projects and activities which strongly incorporate the Inupiaq values.”

Michelle said, “Ever since I was a young girl, I have always wanted to become a teacher. During my junior and senior year of high school, I worked at Ipalook for ‘on the job training’ with the K-3/K-4 bilingual class. I really enjoyed the classroom atmosphere, and knew that this is what I wanted to do my whole life.” We wish Michelle the best of luck in her Bachelor’s program! Aarigaa! Kiita!
