Chiniak student graduates early in special ceremony
The Kodiak Island Borough School District Board of Education held a special graduation ceremony during its June 5 work session for Chiniak School student Lillie Ann Bowen. Bowen, who just completed her junior year of high school, amassed enough credits to earn her high school diploma a year early. To be sure, Bowen has been a stand-out student at Chiniak. Earlier this year, she was notified that she was an alternate for the 2017 Rural Alaska Honors Institute, or RAHI. When asked by BOE members what was next for her, Bowen replied that she was joining the Marine Corps. Good luck to you, Lillie Ann!
