SITNASUAK GIVES BACK: DONATION TO NOME PUBLIC SCHOOLS
Sitnasuak recently donated $20,000 to Nome Public Schools (NPS) for the use in engaging students, families and the community in activities that support and encourage participation in postsecondary education and training opportunities. “The support from Sitnasuak Native Corporation to our school district the past decade has been amazing. We look forward to continuing partnerships by working on developing our next generation of teachers, locally raised and locally employed,” says Shawn Arnold, NPS Superintendent.
This donation, when combined with contributions from the Alaska Commission on Postsecondary Education (ACPE) and the College Advising Corps National Office will support staffing, event, and direct student service costs for College & Career Guides at Nome-Beltz High School.
