Bishop Union High School sophomore Sabrina Stone stands with her grandmothers last Thursday, Nov. 29, in the Bishop Tribal Chambers after being sworn in as the new Miss Bishop Paiute Tribe. She is wearing a crown beaded by Tammy Andrade. Stone was appointed to the post by the Tribal Council, which has been filling the position either by appointment or pageant since 1993. Stone will be the Tribe’s representative at various local, state and national tribal and cultural events, and will be coordinating a community service project focusing on a reading program for tribal youth. She is the daughter of Evelyn Kennedy and Harlan Stone of Bishop, and granddaughter of Lois and the late Equal Kennedy and Charlie and Gertie Stone, also of Bishop. According to Stone, she is excited about her new role for the community and is available to assist with any local event. She can be contacted via the Bishop Tribal Office at (760) 873-3584.
