I’m grateful for our teachers and community at CIA. My life would have been very different without those positive relationships. I especially appreciate Gary and Jill Leiter’s good example of compassion and humility (and installation of a love of hiking), Miss Becky’s constant kindness to students whether preschool or junior / senior high, and Tatiana (Khmelyova) Lott’s encouragement and continued friendship. And Mr. C for pointing not just to academic learning but also to wisdom that stands the test of time.
I live in Anchorage with my 2 sons, JJ (6) and Calvin (4). I recently left the state after serving as an assistant attorney general. Now I’m counsel to the firm at Lane Powell, LLC.
