WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO
Alexandria Cole was a proud member of the Quinault Tribe and a senior at Chief Leschi High School. In 2012, she was a 3.7 GPA honor student with a great attendance that made her eligible and accepted to be the Daffodil Princess. Her parents Christina Cole and Sterling Coit could not be more excited and filled with joy and they told everyone about Alexandria’s accomplishments and were so proud of all she had done to keep up her good work in and out of school.
On the morning of April 10, 2012, Alexandria had committed suicide just days before the big Daffodil Parade. Alexandria was really looking forward to being in the parade, so the suicide was a surprise to all who knew and loved her. She really loved her family, school, and being a princess brought her so much joy which made it so much harder to accept the fact that this was a reality. Alexandria is the granddaughter of Joe Hipp and All Nations Foundation came up with “Keeping the Dream Alive Scholarship” which is a yearly scholarship for the Chief Leschi Princess.
