Taos Pueblo/ Cherokee Nation
A descendent of the Taos Pueblo and Cherokee Nation, Ingram’s Cornell activities include service as Co-Chair of the Native American Students at Cornell; participation in the Doris Duke Conservation Scholars Program; and service on the ALANA (African, Latino, Asian, Native American) Intercultural Board and in the American Indian Science and Engineering Society. Ingram would like to pursue a career in fisheries management, to conserve a resource “crucial to both the livelihoods of people and to the health of aquatic ecosystems throughout the world,” he says. He is primarily interested in fisheries management through the use of statistical analysis and how such methods relate to government policies. He aims to pursue a master’s degree. Ingram is a dean’s list scholar and has been honored by the Samuel and Barrett Scott Excellence Fund. He has interned at the Department of Natural Resources and served as a Spanish tutor for the American Indian Program. Most recently, Ingram was a recipient of the 2015 Udall Scholarship.
