At the Pacific High graduation last Thursday (05-21-15), five students donned robes for a ceremony at Sheet'ka Kwaan Naa Kahidi. It was a full house as the all-Native Alaskan class took the stage.
It's one thing to study an international crisis in high school, and another thing to do something about it. Pacific High School students Tatyanna Isaacs and Jenny Jeter learned about high rates of maternal mortality in Somaliland in Hillary Seeland's Global Issues class. The pair independently organized and held an Indian Taco sale last fall (that's taco fixings served on classic Southeast Alaskan fry bread) and raised over $500.
