KPC celebrates 50th anniversary

On July 1, 2014, staff and faculty at KPC's Kenai River Campus raised KPC Founding Director Clayton Brockel's U.S. Flag (that was given to Brockel when he was discharged from the army on Aug. 2, 1946) to commemorate KPC's July 1, 1964 founding and in memory of Director Brockel. The flag was lowered on July 2 and placed in the KPC time capsule with instructions for the flag to be flown again on July 1, 2064.

Announcements
  • The Kenai Peninsula Borough School District will be providing high school students a shuttle bus service to and from KRC this semester.

  • KPC's fall 2014 semester is here! Welcome to all of our new students and welcome back to those who have attended KPC before.

  • The newly revised academic catalog is now available electronically at the KPC website. The online version is searchable to assist students, faculty and staff quickly find specific information. The catalog was previously revised bi-annually but is now being revised annually in tandem with UAA’s catalog revision schedule. The document is also available as a downloadable PDF. The Kenai River Campus Library has access to past editions of the catalog for those students who may need to reference that information.
  • KPC's 50th anniversary history book, "Keeping the Fire Burning," written by Tony Lewis and Clark Fair, and designed by Chris Jenness, is now available to purchase! The book, which chronicles KPC's first 50 years, is 284 pages long and includes many wonderful photos and stories about the college. "Keeping the Fire Burning" is currently on sale at the KRC Bookstore for $19.99. Stop by and pick up a copy today!
  • This year marks KPC’s fiftieth anniversary (1964-2014) and to help commemorate this milestone, KPC’s advancement team is asking you, the Kenai Peninsula community, to take the time to tell us how the college has impacted your life, your family and the community as a whole. 

    The story of KPC is more than facts and dates—it’s the collective experiences had by students, staff and faculty members. Are you an alum, retired staff member, current student or friend of the college? Are you a current or former College Council or Kachemak Bay Campus Advisory Board member? Let us hear from each of you! 

    Many of the stories collected may be included in KPC’s semicentennial events, including select stories placed in a time capsule that will be opened at KPC’s centennial celebration in 2064. .

    What types of things would help flesh out your story? Here are some guidelines that might help:

    What brought you or your family to the Kenai Peninsula? Explain why you chose to study/work at Kenai Peninsula College. In what areas of college life were/are you engaged? Describe what the college was like and your principal interests during your year(s) at the college. During your time at KPC, who were people you had friendships with, were inspired by, or in some way made a difference in your time here, and why? What were some of the biggest changes or most significant events that took place during your time at the college? What impact did your experiences at KPC have on the rest of your life? What years were you at KPC?  What degree or area of study did you pursue during your time at the college? What would you say was your biggest accomplishment at KPC? Feel free to include any other comments about your KPC experience.
