As we all now know, the ADFY program received no funding from
the borough. The nearly 20-year-old drug education program has
a questionable at best future in Ketchikan as a result. Emotions
have flooded my brain since the decision was handed down. As
I begin to look for another job three weeks before my wedding,
I can't help but think of the children that stand to lose from
the loss of this program. I would like to thank all of the kids
in Ketchikan that I had the opportunity to teach this year
I expect you all to remember and share what you have learned.
I have been blessed with the opportunity to help the children
of Ketchikan to be prepared for the pressures they will one day
face. I sincerely hope that the ADFY program can find a way
to continue its important mission in our community. I am still
looking forward to a bright future for my family here in Ketchikan.
If any of you local businesses
are looking to hire a passionate and motivated individual with
a business administration education and a dedication to the prosperity
of our community, please call 209-1736.
