Fundraiser for Trustee Bernice Joseph

Bernice became a member of the Foundation board in 2010. She is originally from Nulato and is the daughter of Edith Nicholas. She lives in Fairbanks with her husband Stewart. Bernice has been a tireless advocate for education and a respected leader who has served Alaskans for decades. She currently works at UAF’s College of Rural and Community Development (CRCD) as the Vice Chancellor for Rural, Community and Native Education. She previously worked for the State of Alaska and the Fairbanks Native Association.

Bernice was recently diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. She will be undergoing chemotherapy treatments in Fairbanks and will travel to Seattle for surgery later this year. All proceeds from the fundraiser will be used to help offset costs incurred during Bernice’s treatment.
