Lindsay said she wants to continue and build upon programs like the TCT WEST Today's Choices for Tomorrow scholarship program, after school programs, summer programs and tutoring but also enact new programming to give youth more voice and get them involved in the coalition, perhaps even starting a youth coalition similar to the former Lovell Youth Coun- cil. "I also want to work on getting the funding back," she said noting a recent reduction in grant money received. She said she will be actively applying for a variety of grants. "It's very exciting," she said, "not only just to bring the program back where it was and involve my own kids and their friends but to give back to the community we grew up in." The Big Horn County Health Coali- tion funds tutoring programs, summer programming, the Today's Choices for To- morrow scholarship program, alternative activities for youth such as after-prom par- ties, after-homecoming parties and the like, counseling and awareness/preven - tion media campaigns. The coalition ,has worked with state and local government representatives to protect youth through the sex offender registry, decreased sales of alcohol and tobacco to youth and participa- tion in the local Prescription Drug Aware- ness Committee to decrease the misuse and abuse of prescription medication.

Correction Stauffer, not Strom A Rocky Mountain High School dancer was incorrectly identified in a photo in last week's Chronicle. Shown during the homecoming game halftime dance, Haley Stauffer was identi- fied as Haley Strom. Stauffer was wearing jersey number 64 in the dance routine. When I attended Northwest College as a nontraditional-age student, I expected to learn the required science, English and math. ! didn't expect to learn so much about myself. Everyone around me -- standing at the head of the class and in my student study groups -- helped me become who i am today. I support the scholarship efforts of the NWC Foundation because I want every person in the Big Horn Basin to have this same opportunity for self discovery. That's why Northwest matters to me. Wyoming State Representative, Lovell, Wyo. My morn cried at my high school scholarship night. She was proud of me for the scholarships I earned, but she was also afraid there still wouldn't be enough for me to go to college, even with the money I had saved working as a janitor. I wanted to take the stress and expense off my parents as much as I could. When [ found out the NWC Foundation would make it possible for me to get more scholarships, it was a huge, huge relief. That's why Northwest matters to me. NWC student, Greybull, Wyo.
