She is very involved with her children’s school, and loves the outdoors, painting, reading and crafting.

“I have always been very passionate about education, whether it be furthering my own or encouraging others to continue with theirs. As a past recipient, I feel this is a good way to give back,” Cleaver said. “I am honored and grateful to be able to sit on and serve with the Doyon Foundation board. They have done wonderful things for our people, and I look forward to learning and participating in all the awesome work that the Foundation is doing.”

Aaron RothRoth, elected to serve a three-year term, grew up in King Salmon and Wasilla, as well as Loretto, Tennessee, and currently lives in Anchorage.
