Area businesses show support for great educational opportunities

Mountain View fifth-graders began raising money for their field trip to Kenai Fjords this spring by running the Bingo Room during Mountain View's annual Halloween Carnival.

I would like to thank the following businesses for generously contributing bingo prizes: Gilman and Associates, HiSpeed Gear, Era, Tesoro, Unocal, River City Dental, GCI, Enstar, Homer Electric Association, Big Kmart, Carrs, Fred Meyer, McDonald's, American Red Cross, The Haircutters, Brown Agency, Radio Shack of Kenai, First National Bank, Malston's, Candy Bouquet, Halcyon and Blockbuster Video.

We are so fortunate to live in a community where businesses are willing to make contributions to provide educational opportunities for our children.

Many contribute to success of academic recognition program

On Nov. 13, KCHS held its eighth academic awards banquet for students who earned a 3.5 or above GPA during the spring semester. Full-time students at KCHS are eligible for an academic letter if they have two consecutive semesters of 3.5 or higher GPAs.

We would like to thank school board member Margaret Gilman for her thought-provoking talk on "generation 911."

We appreciate McDonald's of Kenai's financial support and for generously supplying coupons for each of the students.

Many people are involved in the program to make it a success. Thanks also goes to: Berry Swenson, Hank Overturf, Pam Lazenby, Lynn Janson, Mark Manuel, Christine Bergholtz, Jim Davis, Tim Delaney, Connie Jung, Susie Franklin, Liana Bigham, National Honor Society and the technical crew at KCHS.
