Congratulations Alejandro!!

AISES (American Indian Science Engineering Society) has come to Coconino High School. 

Several students from the Nizhoni Academy voiced their interest in AISES, and wanted to know how they could bring AISES to their school. With collaboration from school staff, NAU AISES and sponsorship from Nizhoni Academy, the Coconino High School AISES club has begun meeting on a weekly basis. CHS AISES is working to prepare the students of CHS for careers in the sciences and providing students with community service opportunities. Many students from the Nizhoni Academy were elected into leadership positions within the club.
