2 peninsula students earn Safari Club scholarships

Alaska’s Kenai Peninsula Chapter of Safari Club International wishes to recognize the accomplished young people who earned $4,000 scholarships this year, presented at the May 5th fundraiser/banquet.

Kristin Klaich is graduating from Nikolaevsk School, first in her class. She coaches and referees elementary basketball games, is captain of the varsity volleyball and basketball teams, and is a student council leader. Kristin has volunteered four years for SCI. She plans to major in Early Childhood Education at University of Alaska Anchorage.

Nicholas Edwards is graduating from Soldotna High School and this is his fourth year volunteering for SCI as a member of the Shooting Stars Team.

Besides football and basketball, Nick volunteers for his grandfather’s non-profit guide service in Wyoming, which helps wheelchair-bound and physically disabled people hunt for deer, antelope, elk, and waterfowl. Nick plans to attend University of Wyoming, but also has a scholarship offer from Nebraska to be on their shooting team.

The $4,000 scholarships are awarded $1000 per year as long as the student remains eligible. This year’s essay topic: How game management benefits both consumptive and non-consumptive users.

SCI is a non-profit organization dedicated to wildlife conservation, education, humanitarian efforts, and protecting our hunting heritage. Congratulations to these outstanding students.
