It’s been an eventful year for the Yates family.
Roy Yates retired from Ahtna Construction last December after a long and accomplished career. Ahtna thanked him for his many contributions and presented him with retirement gifts.
Heather Yates, daughter of Roy and the late Judy Yates and granddaughter of Robert and Mae Marshall, was recently promoted to the position of chief ranger at the Petrified Forest National Park in Arizona. Heather, who is a proud recipient of the Ahtna Heritage Foundation Scholarship Program, credits “the Foundation for contributing to my successful career!”
Clint Marshall, son of the late Elmer Marshall and grandson of Robert and Mae Marshall, retired from the Marine Corps in January.
Ashley Rosas, daughter of Roy and the late Judy Yates and granddaughter of Robert and Mae, and her husband, Joel, welcomed the birth of their first child, a son, Asher Ardell Rosas, on March 4. Asher is the 12th great-grandchild for Robert and Mae Marshall.
