We Still Believe

Talented, Intelligent Lumbee sisters

Tribal Chairman Harvey Godwin congratulated these two talented, intelligent Lumbee sisters from Greensboro. At left is Elena Jacobs Polanco, a rising sophomore at UNC Chapel Hill, and Brianna Jacobs Polanco, a recent graduate of UNC Greensboro who will be a graduate student at UNC Pembroke in the spring. The tribal chairman encouraged the women to continue to do well in their studies and he congratulated them for representing Indian people so well, not only in Robeson County but all over the world. “We have some talented young people,” Godwin said. “It’s so refreshing to see them involved with their culture, learning their history and honoring their heritage. I commend these two young ladies here. We have a bright generation coming up behind us.”
