Congratulations, High School Graduates!
Tuesday, May 25, 2021

Alexandra Kirby is graduating from Oregon State University with a degree in civil engineering this spring. Kirby received scholarships from Sealaska to help finance her education.

High school graduations are taking place this month, with many students receiving their hard-earned diplomas. High school can be hard to navigate, and learning during a global pandemic has been a new challenge for our young students. The class of 2021 has shown what true perseverance is.

“This past year has seen tremendous educational disruption and required great dedication and effort from students,” acknowledged Sealaska President & CEO Anthony Mallott. “We all share pride in your accomplishments, your resiliency and your commitment to your education. We look forward to seeing this next chapter of your lives and all you accomplish in the future.”
