There’s a new Tribal Court Administrator for the Central Council of Tlingit and Haida Indian Tribes of Alaska.

Frances Andrews has been promoted from Lead Clerk of the Court and will now be responsible for the day-to-day operations of the Tribal Court, according to a press release.

“We are very fortunate to have Frances,” said President Richard Chalyee Éesh Peterson. “Her dedication to the Tribe and our citizens is evident in the great work she has already accomplished with our Tribal Court.”

Andrews joined the Tribal court in July 2017. She is in her final year of school and will be receiving her bachelor’s degree in Business Administration with an emphasis in Management from the University of Alaska Southeast.

“It is key that we have qualified staff in our Tribal Court and I couldn’t be happier to see Frances step into the Tribal Court Administrator position,” said Presiding Judge Debra O’Gara.
