Wildlife show produces scholarship
Ginger Steffy, KPC director, recently received a check for $1,500 from the Kenai Visitors and Convention Bureau for a scholarship fund at KPC.
This money comes from the proceeds after paying all the expenses of the "Alaska 2000: A Celebration of Wildlife Show" last summer. It was presented to Steffy by Kathy Tarr and Fred Braun at a recent Kenai Chamber of Commerce meeting.
Dr. David Wartinbee was recognized by Tarr as being the guest curator and arranging that show. Gary Freeburg also was recognized as being the next guest curator for this summer's upcoming show, "A Fish Odyssey." KPC will co-sponsor the upcoming show.
