JUNEAU - Mayor Bruce Botelho declared today Peggy Cowan Appreciation Day after the outgoing Juneau School District superintendent. Today is Cowan's last official day with the district, though her last day at work was Friday. She had held the post since 2003.
Cowan has accepted a position as superintendent of the North Slope Borough School District.
The Juneau School District spent several hundred dollars buying a newspaper ad in today's Empire announcing the mayor's proclamation and wishing the superintendent well.
