Duckwater May 30, 1985: In Duckwater the tribe had an annual recognition dinner to honor their employees and tribal members. I remember the first year I was there at the awards ceremony hoping maybe one of the awards would come my way. It didn't.
However my second year the tribe did present me with a certificate of appreciation. Jerry Millett, the Tribal Chairman, present me with the award. Ironically it came on the same day I resigned to take employment in Utah.
My journal notes, "The Tribe honored me with a certificate of appreciation the same day I announced my resignation. They had planned it previously"
I felt the award was well earned. I really feel I did my best in my employment in Duckwater. At times it took thinking of creative ways of making use of myself--but for the most part I kept busy, and hopefully I had an influence of good.
