Ketchikan, AK - Following a ceremony to recognize the hard work
of the many people who made the Tongass School of Arts and Sciences
possible and with a quick snip of a ribbon, the Ketchikan community
was formally welcomed into the new charter school Wednesday morning.

TSAS principal Dan Ortiz welcomed
and spoke briefly to the students, teachers and community members
attending the ribbon cutting ceremony. Ortiz displayed a plaque
honoring six community members who were instrumental in making
the dream of the TSAS Charter School a reality. Recognized for
their efforts over a period of two years were John Hill, Brenda
Loughman, Karen Eakes, Don Mitchel, Roxanne Abajian and Mark
Tollfeldt. Through the efforts of these dedicated individuals,
approval of the TSAS Charter School was obtained.
Immediately following the ribbon
cutting ceremony, refreshments were served and community members
were provided a tour of the new facility.
The TSAS is Ketchikan's second
charter school and serves kindergarten through 7th grades. The
first charter school - the Ketchikan Charter School - was established
in the mid-nineties. Both charter schools are housed in the Valley
Park Elementary School building.
