FORT HALL — The Shoshone-Bannock Jr./Sr. High School Powwow was April 14 and 15 at the gymnasium that was dedicated to lead school custodian Blaine Dixey during the event.
School administrator Jonathan Braack said Blaine worked at the school for 21 years and the decision came because the student leadership team wanted to do something nice for him. They saw the many years of service he’s put in to take care of the school specifically the gym and gym floor. “It was a nice way to honor him,” he said.
A banner was placed on the wall and a plaque was presented to him from the school.
The annual powwow was used to celebrate 20 years of the school and all the people that made it what it is over the years. Current school board members Anna Broncho, Sandy Rainey, Donna McArthur, Susie Racehorse and Candace Chandler were presented with sweatshirts and former board members were given cedar bags.
