graduation blitz 2017! #2017ANCGrads

Join us for a city-wide celebration to honor the class of 2017, inspire future grads and reinforce the message to families and community members that graduation is an important milestone that we value as a community. 

Help us blitz the city with messages of support and pride for our graduates - from Chugiak to Girdwood!

When: April 26 - May 20, 2017 (when graduations are held across the district.)
