On Tuesday, October 12th our 3rd Period Alaska History Class was discussing some of the results of Sitka’s local elections when we got a big surprise.   Alaska’s one and only U.S. Representative in Congress,  Don Young,  dropped in to find out what we were learning about and also shared some of his stories about being a politician, a miner , a dog musher and a teacher in the Great State of Alaska. 

Thank you Congressman Don Young!

He also told us that he was looking for a hardworking, ambitious 26-year-old Alaskan to represent Alaska in Congress after he retires... J
