Description

"Educational Perspectives"

Antoinette Cavanaugh was born in the old Owyhee hospital in 1960 to Adriana Harney.  In fact she speaks about how her mother was a nurse at that same hospital.  Antoinette lived on the Duck Valley reservation on Dog Street until her 3rd grade year when she moved to Elko.  From Elko she moved back to Owyhee her freshman year and graduated there in 1978.  She advises the younger audience members that they should become involved in any activity that is available or afforded to them.  After Antoinette graduated high school she attended college and became an educator in 1983 and started teaching at Owyhee combined school.  From there she tells us of her experience moving about the district eventually becoming the superintendent of Elko County School District and obtaining her master’s degree from University of Nevada, Reno.  She then goes on to speak of retirement, or lack thereof, and working with BARRICK of North America in promoting, encouraging and advancing education among the Native Americans within the Elko county area.
