Notable Alumni

Ann Kirkpatrick (Class of ) In 1980, she became Coconino County's first female Deputy County Attorney, and she later served the people of Sedona as City Attorney. In November 2004, Ann’s neighbors elected her to the Arizona Legislature to represent Flagstaff and the Havasupai, Hopi, Hualapai, Navajo, and San Juan Southern Paiute Nations. At the state Capitol, Ann championed education and fiscal responsibility. In November 2008, Ann was elected to Congress to represent a sprawling, rural district which includes 12 Native American tribes, including the tribal land where Ann grew up. Ann’s results stood out in Congress, with more of her bills and amendments signed into law than almost any other freshman representative. Ann’s hard work created jobs, helped small businesses, hired more border patrol agents, and protected veterans and seniors on tribal land and in rural Arizona. In 2012, Ann is running again to represent Congressional District 1.
