KPC director thanks College Council

Recently, KPC’s Kenai River Campus hosted the University of Alaska Board of Regents, University of Alaska System President Pat Gamble, and many other senior university officials. The visit went very well and I want to thank the many community members who supported KPC during this visit and over the years.

I particularly want to thank the Kenai Peninsula College Council for their untiring efforts serving as staunch advocates for the college. This 13-member body was integral to the campus getting funding for the Career & Technical Education Center and student housing. Their resolutions, letters, phone calls, visits to the state legislature and public testimony they’ve provided at past Regents’ meetings over the years made a huge difference in securing these buildings that will be built over the next year.

I don’t thank this group of Peninsula-wide residents enough for their time and energy, and wise counsel in moving KPC forward.

Thanks for everything you do for KPC.
