Congratulations to this year’s scholarship recipient, Nikoli Greene. Nikoli is an enrolled tribal member of the Nez Perce Tribe. He currently works full-time at the tribal casino in the finance department and is a sophomore at the Lewis-Clark State College. He is seeking his Bachelor of Applied Science in Accounting with an expected graduation date in 2020. Nikoli began his pursuit of accounting after a couple of promotions prompted his supervisor to suggest he take some college courses. Once he successfully completed those initial courses, Nikoli decided to enroll as a full-time student. His eight years of experience in multiple areas of the casino gave him knowledge that has helped in his studies. Nikoli wants to give back to his community by working within the Tribe after he earns his degree and hopes to be a part of helping his Tribe succeed within their tribal businesses.
