Kodiak College just began its new school year, which also happens to be its 40th
anniversary year. Mary Donaldson had the chance to speak with Director of the Kodiak College
and has this report.
College Director Barbara Bolson says the institution has had tremendous growth
since it was first proposed more than 40 years ago.
(Bolson 5 :20s “…come a long way.”)
Some classes officially started on
September 8th. She says the college has a plenty to look forward to
this year, and that enrollment continues to rise.
(Bolson 1 :30s “…student to campus.”)
every year the college phases out classes that are no longer necessary, as well
as creating new class offerings.
(Bolson 2 :35s “…for young children.”)
says the college was also able to line up a local author to teach a class,
which was challenging since the author has a pretty busy schedule teaching in
(Bolson 3 :20s “…taught for the college before.”)
they also worked with the Kodiak
Island Borough School District in securing a new, high-tech
(Boslon 4 :40s “…and so forth.”)
the going rate for the simulator is typically around 65-thousand dollars, and
that the College was able to secure it for only 45-thousand dollars.
it’s still not too late for anyone to sign up for classes at the college, and
that there are many late-starting courses that are being offered. She says the
college will be planning several events as the year goes on to help celebrate
its 40th year anniversary.
