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.
Summertime at KNOM is always a bittersweet season of hellos and goodbyes, with the turnover of service terms for our full-time volunteers. But this year, we have one more “goodbye” to say: to former-volunteer-turned-staffer Betsy Brennan.
It was a proud moment both for the Nome community and for KNOM early last month, as a local theatre production brought a few of our full-time volunteers into the arts scene of our region — and brought a taste of 1890s England to 2010s Alaska.
As recruitment for 2015-2016 KNOM volunteers continues, Caitlin remembers her own application process.
We present our financial report for the 2014 fiscal year (July 1, 2013 to June 30, 2014), with a summary comparison of expenses and income for fiscal years 2013 and 2014.
Francesca shares what she’s thankful for this year.
Kristin navigates self-doubt and the art of interviewing on her recent solo trip to Koyuk.
“What is this year going to mean?” volunteer Jenn asks. “Who are we going to be next year when the days start to grow longer again, when the icy, liquid-metal sea melts back to blue?”
While dealing with a recent loss, volunteer Kristin reflects on what it means to be home.
As we say goodbye to the 2013-2014 class of KNOM volunteers, we offer snapshots of their recent writing on our website; each offers a glimpse at what makes our volunteer program so special and so crucial.
