The program begins at 1:30 p.m. in the Grandroom of the A.K. Hinds University Center. Sneed, a U.S. Marine Corps veteran who formerly taught at Cherokee High School, will speak on leadership from a cultural perspective and share his experiences with leadership and education.

Members of WCU’s Native American Students Association and Tonya Carroll, director of the Ray Kinsland Leadership Institute in Cherokee, will join Sneed for a panel discussion on leadership. The program is a signature event of the current campus learning theme of “Cherokee: Community. Culture.
