The Education Committee was established at the request of the Education Director and with the approval of the Business Committee to establish guidelines for an Education Program built around the philosophy that “Education is the future for the Eastern Shawnee Tribe”. The Education Director position was originally funded from a generous gift from Tribal member Margaret Gilbert (Hampton).
The Education Committee’s primary purpose each year is to review the present program and improve it for the coming year. The Education Committee serves as a step in the education benefit appeal process. The Education Committee also reviews special requests regarding the program. Additionally, due to the establishment of the On-The-Job Training Program, one Education Committee member serves as a Mentor for new trainees.
