Alaska Senator Dan Sullivan will be at Kayhi today, August 31st from 9:15-10:45 a.m. speaking to and taking questions from the seniors. This assembly will be held in the auditorium and is open to all seniors. Susan Stone, one of Kayhi’s social studies and government teachers, said the experience will be valuable for students.
“This is a very unique opportunity for students to be able to see the senator of their state in person.”
This is Sullivan’s first time at Kayhi.
“My biggest hope to get him here is that kids will be able to recognize one person in the government,” said Stone. “If they want to change something or if they have ideas about government they’ll have a face and a person that they connected with.”
Sullivan has a busy schedule while he is in Ketchikan including a meeting about the use of drugs and alcohol in the community. He also has a joint meeting with Rotary and the Chamber of Commerce.
