Daryl Legg has been employed with Cherokee Nation since 2006. He graduated from Northeastern State University, where he obtained his BA in Psychology and Minor in Social Welfare. Upon graduation, Mr. Legg was recruited by Cherokee Nation to work as a Vocational Rehabilitation counselor. He then was transferred to Employment and Training and then became a Job Developer. In 2009, he was promoted to Director of Vocational Programs and then he was made the Director of Economic Development and Reentry.

In 2014, Daryl was selected by President Obama as a “White House Champion of Change Award” for his efforts in reentry to employment. He also received the 2014 Cherokee Nation “National Statesmanship of the Year” and was featured on the Osyio TV program. In 2015, he was elected as City Commissioner for Sallisaw, Ok where he served for one term.

Assisting with removing barriers is Mr. Legg’s passion, especially, for ex-offenders. After being incarcerated on three different occasions for various drug charges, he now works diligently assisting Cherokee citizens who are being released from prison by way of the Cherokee Nation Re-Entry Program called “Coming Home.”

Mr. Legg has received several certifications, including Offender Employment Specialist and Certified Re-Entry Professional. He is the Vice Chair for the Oklahoma Native American Re-Entry Alliance and also serves on the Native American National Advisory Council for Employment and Training for the Department of Labor.

In the past three years, Daryl has received full pardons from Oklahoma and Arkansas and is ready to serve the Cherokee people as Tribal Councilman for District 6.
