The central Kenai Peninsula was recently host to rural students from around the state including students from the school districts of Bering Straits, Chugach, Craig, Iditarod, Kuspuk, Lake and Peninsula, and Nome.
These students came to our community to explore career options and learn job skills. Their time spent here was a tremendous success thanks to the help of many individuals who went out of their way to invest in these young people.
We would like to extend a huge thank you to the following businesses, industry members and organizations for hosting these students: Central Peninsula General Hospital, Medicenter, CPGH Physical Medicine, Mike PE Consulting, Northern Test Labs, Spenard Builders Supply, Creative Designers, TDS Construction, Tesoro, Agrium, ConocoPhillips, Alaska Flying Net-work, Kenai Control Tower, Kenai Automated Flight Service Station, Aspen Hotels, Kenai Fire Department, Safeway, HiSpeed Gear, United States Coast Guard, Big G Electric, Civil Air Patrol, Peninsula Grace Brethren Church, Kenai Peninsula College, Alaska Christian College and Alaska Vocational Technical Center.
Furthermore, we want to thank Ted and Carol Titus of the Log Cabin B & B and Tom and Lori Swan of A Swan Nest Inn for providing safe and comfortable housing, not to mention the great food, during these students' stay.
Investing in today's youth is an investment in our future. We appreciate each of you who made this experience a success.
