Director Belden, PO III Dunham Help Lead Choose Respect March in Gambell

PO III Mike Dunham and Division Director Carrie Belden went to Gambell on St. Lawrence island for the Choose Respect March on March 27. Representing the Governor, Dunham and Belden met with village leaders, the school assistant principal, the VPSO and other members of the community. Speeches were given in the gym of the school and due to cold weather and wind the march was also conducted in the gym. “The school conducted a week long Choose Respect campaign where classes of all ages participated. Gambell March organizers Lucy and Edna Apatiki and VPSO Debbie Apatiki did an excellent job organizing the event,” Belden said.
