The first Native American appointed to the Arizona Board of Regents said she’s honored to serve on the board, but it comes with a great challenge.

“It’s being a part of history, but it’s also a great responsibility to represent not only Native Americans but also rural Arizona,” said LuAnn Leonard, a member of the Hopi Tribe.
