We wish him all the best at FFD.

Congratulations to our Scholarship Firefighter’s for their academic achievement

We would like to congratulate the following student firefighters for making the University of Alaska Fairbanks’ Chancellors and Dean’s lists. This is a great accomplishment while volunteering 56 hours a week and being a full-time student.

Chancellor’s list (Students receiving a 3.9-grade point average or higher are placed on the chancellor’s list.):

Noah Hamm

Linsey Murphy

Adrian Rodriquez

 

Dean’s list (Students receiving a grade point average of between 3.5 and 3.89 are named to the deans’ list.):

Zachary Yoder

Thank you for your support.

We would like to thank Steve Adams for his continued support of our Department. Mr. Adams has been a long supporter of Steese with his advice and mentorship. Recently he donated a new flagpole for Station 61 and recently donated money towards the purchase of new winter jackets for our members. Because of his generosity, we were recently able to finish our project of purchasing new winter jackets for our members. These jackets are warmer and much more visible than our old jackets. Mr. Adams is a shining example of why Fairbanks is called the Golden Heart City.
