Businesses help employees set good examples for youth

Posted: Friday, January 20, 2006

The Kenai Peninsula Borough School District Aspirations Advocate Program is celebrating its fifth year in high schools and middle schools around the Kenai Peninsula. Thanks to business owners and supervisors from Nikiski to Soldotna, mentors with this program are able to make the commitment to meet one hour a week with their student groups for the duration of the school year. Providing release time for their employees to participate as an Aspirations mentor means more young people have the opportunity to develop their own aspirations.

In honor of their generosity and dedicated efforts on behalf of our youth, I would like to publicly acknowledge and thank the following businesses and organizations: Dunkin and Bush Inc. and Offshore System Kenai (OSK) are providing release time for mentors to volunteer at Nikiski Middle-Senior High School; Kenai Police Department, Kenai Fire Department, Kenai New Life Assembly of God Church and Our Lady of Angels Catholic Church are providing release time for mentors to volunteer at Kenai Central High School; Kenai New Life Assembly of God Church, Kenai Church of God and Kalifonsky Christian Center are providing release time for mentors to volunteer at Kenai Middle School; and Inlet Fish Producers Inc. is providing release time for a mentor to volunteer at Skyview High School.

These Kenai Peninsula businesses and organizations are partners in change. They are working with their employees to make a positive difference in the lives of young people.

I thank them for their dedication to our youth and support of the Aspirations Advocate Program. Their efforts are much appreciated.
