Katie Koester, Homer High School Class of 1998, is currently the City Manager for the City of Homer: “I celebrate the people of Homer–the families who have made it here for generations along with the new families who come to the end of the road, fall in love with this place, and figure out how to make it in this town. This community’s underlying determination to live and persist in Homer means people here are interesting, creative, and diverse. I celebrate the people of Homer because they are problem solvers, because they make Homer the place for their life’s work.” Facebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享The Kenai Peninsula Borough School District is celebrating three graduates who now manage three of the largest cities in the Borough spanning 25,600 square miles. Paul Ostrander, Soldotna High School Class of 1986, is currently the City Manager for the City of Kenai: “Kenai has a diverse history and residents are ardent in their support of their hometown. When people talk about living in Kenai, whether talking about fishing the river or family time on the beach, you can sense the pride they have in our natural resources and community. The statement that, it’s the best place to live in the world, is heard often, and meant wholeheartedly.” Stephanie Queen, Kenai Central High School Class of 2000, is currently the City Manager for the City of Soldotna: “One of the things I really appreciate about Soldotna is how engaged our residents are. We’ve figured out how to work together across public, private, and non-profit lines, to move big projects forward. This has allowed us to accomplish several of the community’s long-standing goals; something we would not have been able to do without strong partnerships.” KPBSD has created individual profiles for each of these City Managers and will follow-up with a four-part series highlighting KPBSD graduates.
