Project GRAD says thanks

Totem Ocean Trailer Express is committed to giving back to our community. Their support of Project GRADs Summer Institute and Middle School Bridge programs helps low-income students from rural, underserved Kenai Peninsula schools learn skills needed to succeed in high school and continue successfully on to college.

In May, Project GRAD realized the benefits of its work and the generosity of its partners by congratulating 27 GRAD scholars from Nanwalek, Ninilchik, Port Graham, Razdolna and Voznesenka on their high school graduation. Of those graduates, 16 will be continuing on to post-secondary education programs, 13 with Project GRAD scholarships.

Over the years, the DanPaul Foundation has helped fund these PGKP scholarships. DanPaul Foundation recognizes scholarships as an important tool that provides the means for opportunities for enrichment, growth and personal social responsibility.

Project GRAD scholars sincerely thank Totem Ocean Trailer Express and the DanPaul Foundation for their support.

Mike Petersen, executive director
