ECCP Champion of the Month

Ms. Johna Stringer

Ms. Stringer has graciously given to the Employee Charitable Contribution Plan since becoming an employee seven years ago. Her desire to give was propelled by the generous ways the Chickasaw Foundation and the Chickasaw Nation help others. It has inspired her to do her part to give as well.

Johna is an administrative assistant in the Division of Community Services for Counseling and Loan Services, Department of Housing. While working for the Chickasaw Nation, Johna attended school at East Central University and graduated in 2011 with a Bachelor of Arts in Human Service Counseling. In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with her husband, James, and sons, Brett and Wade.  She also enjoys cooking out with friends and family, and reading. Our appreciation goes out to Johna for being a champion for the Chickasaw Foundation.
