KPC honors part-timers

Kenai Peninsula College has designated today through Friday as "Part-time Faculty Appreciation Week." Part-time educators make it possible for KPC to offer a wide range of classes that would not be possible otherwise. More than 90 part-time instructors teach classes on the KPC campuses in Soldotna and Homer. These people provide an integral part of the educational experience for KPC students.

KPC honors its part-time faculty and thanks them for the vital role they play in higher education on the Kenai. A campus display has been set up to highlight the instructors and the public is encouraged to come by and help them celebrate the "part-time heroes."

Anyone interested in becoming a part-time instructor at KPC can contact Suzie Kendrick at 262-0320 for more information.
