Homer students ‘Care for the Kenai’

Of some 500 applicants who worked to develop ideas for improving the environment on the Kenai Peninsula, five Homer High students were in the top 12 finalists of the 2013 Caring for the Kenai program.
Maggie Koplin, Tayla Cabana, Hannah Baird, Elsa Simmons and Elise Webber traveled to Kenai last week to present their ideas and speak to the Caring for the Kenai judges. The Homer students did extensive research and presented to judges, including Kenai Peninsula Borough Mayor Mike Navarre and school district superintendent Steve Atwater.
