For their outstanding contributions to the humanities in the CNMI, the Northern Marianas Humanities Council, along with its Director Leo Pangelinan, Governor Arnold I. Palacios, and Lt. Governor David M. Apatang recently recognized six individuals during the annual Governorโ€™s Humanities Awards event. 

This yearโ€™s recipients are:

๐Ÿ”ต Ajani S. Burrell for Research and Publications in the Humanities

๐Ÿ”ต William J. Fife, III for Outstanding Humanities Teacher (in a Classroom Setting)

๐Ÿ”ต Carmen S. Taimanao for Outstanding Humanities Teacher (in a Non-Classroom Setting)

๐Ÿ”ต Deborah A. Fleming for Preservation of CNMI History

๐Ÿ”ต Milton F. Coleman, Jr. for Preservation of Traditional Cultural Practices

๐Ÿ”ต Donald Mendiola for Lifetime Achievement in the Humanities

The NMHC Board of Directors also presented a board resolution to the family of the late Ivan K. Propst. His son and the 23rd CNMI Legislatureโ€™s Floor Leader, Ed Propst, received the resolution on behalf of the family. 

In his remarks, Governor Palacios urged those in attendance to promote the humanities in their households: โ€œEncourage your children to read, explore the arts, and engage in critical discussions. Attend lectures, exhibitions, performances, and other activities that celebrate the humanities.โ€ 

The governor emphasized that the humanities are not reserved exclusively for scholars, but something that we can participate in and incorporate into our everyday lives.
