After 26 years, it’s the end of an era for Unalaska’s preschool. Teacher Susan Carlisle is retiring today.

“I’m going to be 73 this summer; it’s time to quit,” Carlisle said. “My energy at the end of the day is like, 'oh I’m tired.' But, it is hard to leave. It’s hard to leave the island. I’ve been here 38 years, so I’m going to miss it a lot.”

Why the dispensary at the Iliuliuk Family Health Services Clinic has cut back hours; the city donates its old ambulance to Chignik; preschool teacher Susan Carlisle retires; and an upcoming workshop on Paralytic Shellfish Poising.

Smiling friends and family filed into the large gym waiting with anticipation for the senior class to boldly walk the aisle to the UCSD band playing the classic graduation march, “Pomp and Circumstance.” Spirits were high at the 2016 UCSD Graduation Ceremony which was held Saturday, May 21st at 7pm.

The class of 2016 took seats in the corner opposite the band under a massive arch made of blue and gold balloons.

The ceremony started off with a few kind words from UCSD Superintendent John Conwell.
