This month's KPC Word on Campus

What are your plans for the summer break and do you plan to return to KPC in the fall?

For summer, I'm going to be working for the Center for Alaskan Coastal Studies. I'll be running the Yurt on the Spit, where they have the Spit Kids program and kids come to explore the beach and harbor and do crafts. I won't be returning to KPC in the fall since I'll be finished with my pre-nursing classes. I'm applying to UAA and other schools outside Alaska.

My plans for summer break are to take a psychology class, and I plan to be working all summer. I do plan to return to KPC in the fall, and I'm really excited about it!

I plan this summer to go home and take a nap. Get up and find a king-sized snickers bar. Then I'm going to eat it; with that energy I am going to work. I may go fishing or camping. Then go back to work because I like money. I may come back to KPC as a part-time student in the fall.

The plane tickets are bought for Michigan where my recently widowed sister is in need of a home. While building her home, I will take an online summer class at KPC. When I return to KPC in the fall, I will finish my bachelor's degree in human services with a minor in substance abuse. Spring 2018 begins my endeavor towards my master's degree in executive leadership. This journey will be continued at University of Hawaii, Hilo. When I return to Nikiski with my master's degree in hand, I will open a local business and give back to the community.
