    Congratulations, Debbie McLavey, Ketchikan | Arts Educator

    Debbie is the Native Arts Teacher at Kayhi and has built a thriving program. She teaches students from Kayhi and Revilla, weaving, form line, beading. Debbie works with Tribal Youth and has done an amazing job bringing Native Arts to youth.

    Debbie encouraged her class to submit art in our Youth Art Exhibit, we were able to see the amazing work her students do. The program often doesn’t get the support it needs and in the years she has had the program she has nurtured some very fine artists.


    Mrs. McLavey Arts Champion!
