PRLog - Nov. 29, 2010 - New West Technologies, LLC (NWT) was one of the many businesses who sponsored the 7th Annual American Indian Scholars Gala on November 4, 2010. The event was hosted by the Rocky Mountain Indian Chamber of Commerce, a not-for-profit organization which helps provide business development, training, and education to its members, and was held in Denver, Colorado with over 500 people in attendance. At this year’s event, the Colorado Indian Education Foundation and the Denver Museum of Nature and Science awarded 13 scholarships to American Indian students residing in Colorado.
NWT CEO James S. Williamson explained, “Sponsoring the event was a great opportunity for NWT to give back to the community. The education of American Indian students is something that is very important to me and I am proud to be a part of this excellent event.”
The gala is held every year, thanks to help from business donations and fundraising events, such as American Indian Scholar license plates and The Colorado Indian Education Foundation golf tournament. During the gala, a silent auction was also held, in which over $8,000 was raised for 2011 scholarships.
"Without the help of the various businesses and people who donated to the Colorado Indian Education Foundation we would not be able to make this possible. We have to support our Native American students for they are the voice of our future,” said Josh Running Wolf, President of the Rocky Mountain Indian Chamber of Commerce.
