We are Trail Markers
Neal Charlie, Minto Elder
"We still use the old way of marking the rail with sticks. The first man out on the trail after the new snow puts out willow sticks so when the trail drivs over, the next one will see them and won't get lost. Student attending the University are like trail marker, leading the way to success for other students..."
Vicki Williams, Upward Bound Facilitator
