Deb: Blog Coordinator, Anyone?

49 Writers - Thu, 01/15/2015 - 6:00am


When Executive Director Morgan Grey asked how long I’d been helping with the blog at 49 Writers, I had to stop and count.
Six years.
This amazing statewide writing center got its start as a blog, and the blog remains one of its signature features. Accessible statewide, it’s a way for all of us to stay connected, to feel part of the writing community no matter where we live.
I’ve had great fun getting to know all of you who’ve written guests posts and submitted Alaska Shorts features and interviews and Spotlight pieces. But it’s time for me to move on to other adventures and let someone else have the fun.
The volunteer blog coordinator makes sure a post runs each weekday on the 49 Writers blog, along with updating the featured author sidebar and promoting the blog on the 49 Writers Facebook page. There’s a nice system in place, with some regular items like the Friday round-up and the monthly featured author.
On average, it takes ten hours a month to keep the blog up to date, a little more if you end up writing an original post here or there to fill in. If you’re reliable, responsible, pay attention to detail, know (or can readily learn) the Blogger platform, and communicate well, 49 Writers needs you!

So come have a turn at keeping us connected via the 49 Writers blog. Fill out a volunteer form today, and in the “tell us about you” spot, mention your interest in the blog coordinator position.

School District Report on Investigation into Hazing

Juneau School District Announcements - Wed, 08/27/2014 - 3:35pm

The Juneau School District has concluded our investigation into allegations that on or about May 30-31 of this year a group of incoming senior boys hazed/initiated a group of incoming freshmen boys by paddling them multiple times.

These events were first brought to our attention in early June. At that time the district began an initial investigation, which, due to an active police investigation and summer vacation, was put on hold. When we were informed that the police had concluded their investigation we resumed our efforts.
