TAHLEQUAH – The Cherokee Nation Marshal Service recently surprised five high school students with desktop computers to use for both high school and college studies.

Sequoyah High School freshman Alexia Glory and SHS sophomore Katherine Sanchez, Oaks senior Harlie McKie, Bluejacket senior Hannah Brewster and Muldrow senior Lacy Smithson each received a computer through the North Pole Project.

The CNMS receives desktop computers each year to present to deserving students who are chosen by their school leaders. At Bluejacket, a small community in Craig County, teachers and staff believed 18-year-old Brewster would be the perfect recipient and submitted her name to the Marshal Service.

“I want to go into nursing at NEO and getting this computer is very important for doing that,” Brewster said. “I’ll be writing a lot of essays. Everything that happens with college anymore is online now with having to email all of your assignments in, so I appreciate being selected to get a new computer. It means so much to me.”

The North Pole Project is a collaboration between the CNMS and Broken Arrow Police Department.

CNMS Community Resource Investigator Shawnna Roach said 2019 marks the eighth year the marshals have worked with the North Pole Project to reward deserving students.

“These desktop computers are loaded with the software and features these students will need to write their papers and complete other homework,” said Roach. “It’s important for students to have every available resource to succeed in school. That’s why the Cherokee Nation Marshal Service participates in the North Pole Project and will continue providing students with computers.”
