The Alexie Isaac Memorial Scholarship was created in 2006, in memory of Isaac, a long-time employee of Bethel Broadcasting, who worked as a television producer, cameraman, editor, translator, and radio announcer. Bethel Broadcasting awards two $1,000 scholarships each academic year in his memory.
This year, thanks to the generosity of our listeners during our Spring 2013 fundraiser, the board of directors was able to award three scholarships.
