Ralph Sinnok is a 2007 Graduate of the Shishmaref High School. He is currently a freshman at UAF, majoring in civil engineering. He believes that getting involved in extra-curricular activities and summer programs, such as sports, RAHI, Upward Bound, and the Shishmaref Coalition on Relocation are what have helped prepare him for the college experience. He also appreciates his former teachers and their openness to talk about what college was like for them. He hopes that a degree in civil engineering will enable him to assist his home village of Shishmaref in it’s relocation efforts. His advice to any BSSD student wanting to pursue post-secondary education is “Stay focused and determined.”
