At Work on the Navajo Nation

We are so pleased to welcome Carleton College graduate Meg Holladay as our new Navajo Outreach Coordinator.

Meg is based on the Navajo Nation in St. Michaels, Arizona, where she is bringing a host of services and programs to area schools. 

Through our Blueprint for Success Program, she is helping students with ACT and SAT test prep, college search, college applications, essay writing, and financial aid support.

She is also a resource connector, helping Reader to Reader meet the needs of a wide variety of groups across the 27,000 square-mile Navajo Nation.
