Alaska’s Teachers Rally Around Kawasaki

Fairbanks Rep. “Honored” to Receive NEA-Alaska and Great Alaska Schools Endorsement

Rep. Scott Kawasaki (D-Fairbanks) earned two important education endorsements. Alaska's largest teachers' union NEA-Alaska, the local affiliate of the National Education Association, and Great Alaska Schools, announced that they have endorsed Kawasaki's bid to continue to serve Fairbanks in the Alaska Legislature.

Kawasaki received his education in Fairbanks public schools including Joy Elementary, Tanana Middle School, Lathrop High School, and University of Alaska Fairbanks.  In the Legislature, Kawasaki is well known for his strong support for public education and expanding early childhood education in Alaska.

“I am truly honored to have the support of Alaska’s hard working teachers,” said Kawasaki. “Our teachers are on the front line working for our students every day, and it is humbling that they have reviewed my record and determined that I am the best choice for Fairbanks.”
