Editor’s Note: The letter below was written in response to the proposed funding of the University of Alaska.
Dear House Finance Committee Members,
My name is Gary J. Turner and I have been the director/CEO of Kenai Peninsula College, a unit of the University of Alaska Anchorage for the last 14 years. KPC has two campuses (one in Homer and one in Soldotna) and two extension sites (one in Seward and one in Anchorage). We were founded in 1964 and serve approximately 2,500 students on the Kenai Peninsula and across the state via distance education.
