Junaluska historic photo commemorated in public-art mural

BOONE — A mural showcasing a slice of Junaluska history was installed on a building in the community after a collaborative effort between App State faculty and staff, the Junaluska Heritage Association and Dr. Chip Thomas.

Thomas visited App State to participate in the University Forum Lecture Series on Monday, April 17. In his presentation, Thomas discussed his journey from the state he was raised in — North Carolina — to Arizona, where he has worked as a physician in the Navajo Nation for more than three decades.
