Community ROAR Review:
Bob Ross reviews “Kodiak High School and it’s Students” by H. Leon Abrams Jr. This was an independent research work, carried out in 1956 for partial fulfillment of the Education Science Degree at the Peabody College of Nashville, Tennessee. This paper discusses the school system in the final years of the ‘old school’, the role of the military on the development of the town of Kodiak, as well as being a who’s who of the community of Educational Development in the Post WW2 Kodiak. Bob discusses the development of “tracts” for college bound and non-college bound students, and how it affected him personally as a student in Kodiak at that time.
