The “Eddie Wadda Alumni of the Year Award” aims to recognize outstanding achievement by an individual among UNITY alumni. An alumnus of UNITY is any individual who was actively a part of UNITY as a youth, advisor, trustee, or staff member over 24. UNITY values the dedication of these individuals who embody the spirit of UNITY by giving back to the Native American community. In appreciation, UNITY will honor one such Alumnus or alumna during the 2024 National UNITY Conference in Portland, OR.
