Two Pacific High School students, Jake Kranz (white t-shirt) and Scott Thomas, have been spending a lot of their time recently at the University of Alaska Southeast Sitka Campus. The two students are working with UAS Sitka Campus construction technology assistant professor Pat Hughes to build a new bike shelter for their high school. Pacific High School is Sitka’s alternative high school, and this year the old building was demolished so a new building could be raised. Jake and Scott hope to have their new bike shelter ready for when the new high school building is finished. They designed the shelter to match the architecture of the new high school. They are earning high school credit for their work. Here are some photos of the work in progress.

Continuing  a tradition of recent years, the Sitka Mount Verstovia Masonic Lodge gave bicycles to five Keet Gooshi Heen Elementary School students during the 2012-13 school year. The lodge has donated one bicycle to a student in each third grade class in the school. Yellow Jersey Cycle Shop owner Bill Hughes presented a helmet and lock donated by his shop as part of the prize. Winning students usually are chosen for their citizenship, classwork and attendance.
