In this episode of CNTV News, Brad Clonch and Quin Tran take us first to the inaugural Southeastern Oklahoma Heart Walk held in Ada. Co-sponsored by the Chickasaw Nation and Mercy Hospital, the walk raised awareness for heart disease, which is the leading cause of death among Oklahomans. Next, we learn that Chickasaw Governor Bill Anoatubby has officially declared March as Youth Arts Month; the Nation as a whole firmly believes that arts education helps encourage creative problem-solving and critical thinking, making for more well-rounded adults overall. And application deadlines are coming up for Toksali SMART, a summer employment program for youth ages 14 to 21. Plus, with stormy spring weather approaching, it’s important to start thinking about severe weather preparation. The Chickasaw Nation’s storm shelter program provides shelters for privately owned homes of Chickasaw citizens; grants for up to $2,500 are also available for citizens at large. Finally, we learn about the Chickasaw Historical Society and get a glimpse of the society’s second annual conference.
