Manufactured by incredibly talented WCU engineering students, this ornament was created in partnership with the Cherokee Studies Program and Cherokee Center Staff. The Cherokee syllable Ꮻ is a symbol of place for the Cherokee people. This ornament was made in honor and recognition of the sacred homelands of the Cherokee people, who once resided in the town known as "Two Sparrows Place," which was located on what is now the campus of Western Carolina University.
Proceeds from this holiday ornament help support scholarships for currently enrolled or accepted students who are children of SHRA and EHRA non-faculty employees and Staff Senate initiatives. Staff Senate was able to award six $1,000 scholarships for the 2021-2022 academic year.
Sales are Final.

If the purchaser is a WCU employee, Staff Senate will deliver on campus free of charge, you may select this option when entering your address.
