Alumnae Life Updates – Tanya (Cooke) Tulous

Tanya (Cooke) Tulous, class of 1988 (Washington, DC): “I have moved to DC from Mississippi to work as a Program Specialist for the Office of Indian Education in the Department of Education in the Lyndon Baines Johnson building. I work with Native American tribes across the United States. I have 5 grantees who are working to keep their Native language alive by providing various types of resources to the native children and community. I have 23 grantees who are dedicated to providing academic assistance to Native children in grades k-12 to promote academic achievement. I credit much of my success to the teachings I received from my four years at MHA. Much love and respect to the teachers who taught me and to the Sisters who believed in me when I didn’t believe in myself. I am forever grateful for the opportunity I had to attend MHA. I wish I could personally tell the person/persons who provided the financial gift for me to attend MHA. Whomever you are, you made a difference in my life. Because of your generosity, I am able to do what I am doing today. Your gift was not given in vain. I hope you know that! Thank you!”
