Former Shaktoolik Student Succeeding at UAA!


Rae Jackson is a 1999 graduate of the Shaktoolik High School. She is currently a senior at UAA, majoring in Psychology. She has a six-month old son to support, which has motivated her to keep going and complete her degree. She hopes to someday work in the field of Clinical Psychology or Radiology at the Alaska Native Medical Center. She has always known that there are more opportunities for people with college degrees. Rae wants to tell BSSD students “Don’t be afraid to try. Don’t let things that sound scary stop you from trying. Once you are at college, make connections with other BSSD graduates. It will help you.”
