IDEA grads walk in Anchorage

The IDEA Home-school Program honored 23 area seniors on May 13 at the Performing Arts Center in Anchorage. Family and friends gathered to witness 168 students from Southcentral Alaska receive their diplomas.

 

IDEA is a statewide home-school program based out of the Galena City School District.

Riley Bunn was one of the 23 students and was home-schooled since kindergarten. She said she enjoyed the experience she had with IDEA.

β€œIt worked pretty well for me,” she said.

During her educational career she also coached the Kalifornsky Beach Lego Robotics team and won the VFW poetry competition three years in a row.

In the fall she plans to attend Kenai Peninsula College, just starting with basic requirements. Her hope is to become a writer.
