TOTE shows commitment to youth

I am writing to thank Totem Ocean Trailer Express for its recent generous gift to Project GRAD Kenai Peninsula's Scholarship Program. TOTE's commitment to helping rural, minority youth access higher education is appreciated by those who help them toward this milestone and, most importantly, by the youth who have personally worked hard to earn the scholarship.

Thanks to TOTE's donation and others like it, Project GRAD has provided 39 of our 62 qualifying scholars with scholarships since 2007.

The first college class of GRAD students is now successfully completing certificates and/or AA degrees and persisting towards career goals that positively support rural economies.

We are proud to acknowledge TOTE's support of Kenai Peninsula youth.

Mike Petersen, executive director
