The administration named the building after Edison Wauneka, who was the president of Navajo Prep's board of trustees from 2001 until earlier this year. Wauneka said he became board president through a coin toss his first year but was reinstated every year after that.
He then described his first experiences of boarding school when he, as a young child, was sent to Crystal Boarding School in Navajo. The dorms were divided into "big boys" and "little boys. When he arrived, he started following his older brother toward the "big boy" dorm. He said an aide grabbed him by the arm and threw him down the hall.
"And I just thought to myself, 'What am I doing here?'" Wauneka said.

He said to make things better for the Navajo people, they need to focus on young people, like the Navajo Prep students.
Wauneka also told the students one of the reasons he decided to leave Navajo Prep: he plans to run for Navajo Nation president next year, where he said he will continue to focus on education.
If elected, he said he plans to focus on what need to be done within the Navajo Nation, rather than attending conference and going to Washington, D.C.
"We have to concentrate on putting our house in order," Wauneka said.
