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.

Canceled Classes

As of 8:10 a.m. Wednesday, October 22, there are no canceled classes at the Kenai River Campus.
