Students at Kachemak Bay Campus studying English as a second language are finding much more than just basic instruction from volunteer teachers Jane Regan and Kyra Wagner; they’re finding a welcoming home.
Volunteer tutor Jane Regan and GED examiner Kyra Wagner were each recently recognized by the Alaska Adult Education Association for their teaching efforts. Regan brought home the “Rising Star” award, while Wagner picked up recognition as Volunteer of the Year.
KBC Director Carol Swartz announced the awards Friday, outlining the two tutors’ special talents in working with each of their students.
As beaches around Kachemak Bay began to empty of trash – thanks to CoastWalk 2009 clean-up efforts – the walls at the Center for Alaska Coastal Studies began filling up with art.

She was pleasantly surprised.
The first week in a new school can give anyone the jitters and a stomach full of butterflies.
Now, imagine being the new principal at Homer High School and getting a call from the governor.
Around 2 p.m. Friday afternoon, Principal Allan Gee got a quick phone call that Gov. Sean Parnell was on his way to visit the high school.
The reality of climate change hit home for a duo of Homer High students at a special youth science camp this summer, especially when hearing first-hand accounts from their northern peers.
“Current CO2 levels are really high compared to the past. I always knew CO2 levels go up and down in cycles, but I didn’t know how real this really is until I found out that the current readings are literally off the charts compared with nearly all previous ones. It made me really understand how serious climate change is,” explained Homer high school student Justice Sky upon his return from the Alaska Youth for Environmental Action’s environmental training program “Getting Creative About Climate Change” held in Anchorage’s Arctic Valley ski area, July 20-24.
