Elvis Ekitela Nakucho

Elvis Ekitela Nakucho“Elvis” Ekitela Nakucho, 26, is a man of many talents. He works as a community nurse, as a translator for the Turkana Basin Institute, and also happens to know just about everyone in the area. In truth, he is a kind of renaissance man — the¬†students took to calling him The King … of Turkana. Like his namesake, Elvis can sing, he can dance, he drives a motorcycle, and he’s always smiling. Elvis hopes to continue¬†his education at Mt. Kenya University to become a doctor, and we hope he’ll soon visit Stony Brook.
