Greyhills hosts Western Agency Inauguration<br>

President Shirley also admonished the new leaders to work with the people and to have a song and prayer with them as they go forth into public service.

“You have to enjoy working with people; you have to enjoy the long hours,” Shirley said in his 15-minute address. “Sometimes you may need to go without sleep as you try to resolve community problems, but that goes with the job. But the thought that as Navajo people, we have protection songs and prayers, songs and prayers for leadership. It gives solace to us and reassurance that we will make progress for our people throughout the Navajo Nation.”

The chapter presidents were sworn in first, followed by the vice presidents, secretary-treasurers, grazing committee members, farm board members, Kayenta Township Commissioners, and school boards members. They were all elected to four-year terms.
