Carol Odess, of Alabama, gave a major gift last year to help restore Allen Hall on the Sitka Fine Arts Campus. This year she’s back to teach fly fishing to breast cancer survivors, sweep the floors, and bring renewed energy to campus fund raising. She and SFAC development staffer Anne O’Brien discuss this summer’s $100,000 challenge.
