She's too young to know what she wants to be when she grows up, but Kimberly Schilling already has a good start toward a college education. Kimberly, the daughter of Shannon and Dave Schilling of Kenai, was selected by random drawing as the Year 2000 Baby for the central Kenai Peninsula and was awarded a $20,000 scholarship from the Morris Communications Foundation.
The contest was open to all babies born in 2000 at Central Peninsula General Hospital whose parents resided in the hospital service area. The contest was sponsored by the Peninsula Clarion in conjunction with Central Peninsula General Hospital.
