Tiffany Clark, a senior, was recently presented the Distinguished American Indian College Student Award at the 44th annual NC Indian Unity Conference in Raleigh.
Clark, a member of the Lumbee tribe, was nominated by the Lumbee Tribe of North Carolina. She is a double major in political science and criminal justice with a concentration in pre-law. Upon graduation, Clark plans on continuing her education.
At UNCP, Clark is engaged and heavily with campus activities and as a member of the Lumbee Tribe. She is a member of the Alpha Pi Omega Sorority and works at the Lumbee Tribe’s Boys and Girls Club as a youth coordinator. She is also completing an internship with the Lumbee Tribal Government. She works closely with administration on various projects, especially policy writing.
“I really appreciate the love and support my parents have always given me. They continuously encourage me to pursue my professional goals, continue with my education to be an active member of my community,” Clark said.
“It is an honor to work with the strong, leading women in the administrative department of the Lumbee Tribe. They have given me the opportunity to grow under their leadership and have helped me develop my professional skills. I want to thank Chairman Harvey Godwin for believing in my future and allowing his staff to take me under their wings to shape me into a better advocate for the people of this community.”
