NATIVE AMERICAN EXECUTIVE PROMOTIONS ANNOUNCED AT GRAND CASINO HINCKLEY
 Two Vice Presidential Positions to be Held by Mille Lacs Band
 of Ojibwe and Winnebago Tribal Members
 HINCKLEY, Minn., Aug. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- Rayna Mattinas, director of human resources at Grand Casino Hinckley was promoted to vice president of human resources, and Jim Lincoln, the casino's director of maintenance, was promoted to vice president of facilities, effective today. The appointments were announced by Dual B. Cooper, Jr., Grand Casino Hinckley's general manager.
 Cooper said both individuals have exhibited "exemplary leadership qualities and a complete knowledge of their respective fields. These promotions will afford them greater ability to maintain the high levels of performance their respective departments have already achieved under their able tutelage."
 Mattinas, the first band member of the Mille Lacs Band of Ojibwe to attain vice presidential status at Grand Casino Hinckley, is a native of Lake Lena, Minn., and is a graduate of Pine City High School. She attended Normandale Community College in Bloomington, Minn. and majored in business administration at Bemidji State University. She was a teacher's aide in special education at the Mille Lacs Reservation's Nay- Ah-Shing School before becoming administrative assistant to the vice president of operations at Grand Casino Mille Lacs. Mattinas then accepted her position as director of human resources at Grand Casino Hinckley.
 "This is the most challenging, rewarding and fulfilling employment I've ever had. I'm dedicated and committed to ensuring the proper training and development of all Grand Casino Hinckley associates and thank the Mille Lacs Band of Ojibwe for the employment opportunities, and Grand Casinos, Inc. for the necessary guidance and training," Mattinas said.
 Lincoln, a member of the Wisconsin Winnebago tribe and the new vice president of facilities, is a native of Richland Center, Wis., and graduated from Tomah (Wis.) High School. He attended Madison Area Technical College and the University of Wisconsin-Madison, majoring in business management. He also studied at Milwaukee's Harnishfeger Institute and with Associated Builders and Contractors in Fond du Lac, Wis., specializing in scheduling and planning.
 A licensed plumber and Level II Welding Inspector, Lincoln has been employed in building and construction trade projects, including a nuclear power electric generating station, since 1974. He came to Hinckley in January (1992) as an on-site representative to monitor construction and learn the complex mechanical/electrical systems which are an integral part of Grand Casino Hinckley.
 Lincoln stated, "Being at Grand Casino Hinckley is the most enjoyable position I've ever experienced. I congratulate the Mille Lacs Band of Ojibwe on the role model they've been for ALL Native Americans. The hiring preference is a major factor in creating self-esteem and self-reliance for all of us, and I thank them again for allowing me to be a part of the Native American Dream Team."
