Rural Alaska is truly an incredible place. See a few glimpses of recent volunteer travel in our region.
Daily life in Alaska is predictably unpredictable, and this summer’s weather in Western Alaska was no exception.
An August Mass at Nome’s St. Joseph Catholic Church was but the latest way our local faith community has welcomed KNOM and the people who serve at our mission.
We’re happy to introduce to you the two volunteers who will serve as KNOM’s news reporters during the 2015-2016 service year. Meet Laura Kraegel and Emily Russell.
Each new generation of KNOM volunteers — including our brand-new, 2015-2016 class — becomes part of a long history that stretches back to even before our first broadcast.
This month, we’re bidding a final goodbye to our volunteer class of 2015, with a special focus on our production volunteers: Caitlin, Courtney, and Kristin.
Volunteer alumni Margaret DeMaioribus and Josh Cunningham, who became close friends during their shared volunteer year, recently brought their service experiences full-circle through a special reunion trip to Nome.
News volunteers Francesca Fenzi and Jenn Ruckel, whose KNOM service terms conclude in July, recently looked back on their tenure at our radio mission.
A recent collection of “e-waste” in Nome was a singular opportunity for our community to make rural Alaska a cleaner place to live. We were happy not only to spread the word about this important community need but also to take part in it!
It’s summer: the time of new beginnings for our volunteers. We’d like to share two small traditions that have become cherished parts of the season.
