Tulalip Heritage High School principal honored by Northwest Asian Weekly Foundation
SEATTLE — Several times each year, the Northwest Asian Weekly Foundation conducts a luncheon to honor Seattle-area women of color for their accomplishments in blazing new trails in their communities.
During the group's Feb. 3 luncheon, whose theme was "Heritage Keepers: Preserving and Educating for the Future," its members honored Shelly Lacy, principal of Tulalip Heritage High School, for her work in preserving and teaching Lushootseed, the native language of the Tulalip Tribes.
Lacy was among 16 professional women honored by the Northwest Asian Weekly Foundation at its honoree luncheon at the New Hong Kong Restaurant in Seattle's International District.
