Petroglyph Murals / Sitka Campus open house / Alaska Day Festivities
Sitka Campus will be hosting a Grand Opening/Reception for their Petroglyph Murals in the atrium on Wednesday, November 14 from 4:00 to 6:00 pm. UA President Mark Hamilton, the Sitka Advisory Council, Chancellor Pugh and many others plan to be on hand. Local Tlingit artist Robert Hoffman will create a poem about the mural. Marco D'Ambrosio, a regular contributor to the Sitka Fine Arts Camp and composer of scores for PBS films, will compose a special piece of music and perform it at the event. If you're in Sitka on November 14, please stop by and join in the celebration.
Sitkans, legislators, faculty and staff join in the ceremony officially opening the new welding facility at Sitka Campus.
The Sitka Campus open house and welding facility "ribbon cutting" on Alaska Day was a great success. Students from Allen Puckett's welding class torched through a metal ribbon to officially open the welding lab. Over 250 people attended the dedication and lunch, consuming burgers and hot dogs as fast as Chef Love could cook!
Gabrielle LeDoux, Representative from Kodiak (center, with Director Jeff Johnston's wife Linda), was among the legislators who joined in the Alaska Day Festivities held at Sitka Campus. Governor Sarah Palin walked with the Sitka Campus contingent in the parade.
