Meet Raven Radio’s new Program Coordinator, Rebecca LaGuire. Rebecca is the daughter of Michael and Jackie LaGuire, was raised in Sitka and attended both Mt. Edgecumbe and Sitka High School. She began volunteering at Raven Radio through the “Gender Equity Program” a non-traditional Teen Center career program in 1997. Rebecca attended the University of Alaska Southeast and then earned an Associate in Fine Arts from the Art Institute of Seattle and has worked primarily in the commercial photography industry. Rebecca brings experience and skills in managing, training and scheduling community groups, project management, technical development and team leadership. After living briefly in Buenos Aires, Argentina, she recently moved back to Sitka and returned to radio straight away. We are excited to welcome Rebecca back into the Raven Radio family.
