We’re continuing to highlight our Superhero Award winners who are great people doing great work in Indian Country.
Danny Chatter, maintenance supervisor at Yavapai-Apache Nation Tribal Housing, is our 2017 Pillar Professional of the Year.
Danny plays a key role in building his community. He knows how to manage a project, stretch a dollar, and collaborate with others to achieve results. He supervises a staff of 15, has a full workload, and is always available to lend a helping hand. Throughout the Yavapai-Apache Nation, tenants and co-workers have the utmost confidence and respect for Danny. His knowledge, character and integrity are on display daily and can’t be beat.
Danny is a true team player. He’s known to jokingly reply with a “you’re kidding me, right?” when asked to take on a new project. With a smile and a quick shake of his head, he happily goes on to tackle the impossible again and again.
Danny thanked the crowd at the luncheon and offered his thoughts once he returned home.
“Travois, I’m thankful for your inspiration to make a positive impact on Native American families across the country,” Danny said. “Your hospitality and service is the best.”
We’d like to send a thank you, right back to you, Danny! You do great work in your community and are a joy to work with. Congratulations on your accomplishments!
