Special interest classes taught by community members are being reintroduced at the new Prince William Sound Community College campus in Cordova.
Example classes include cooking, writing, sewing, computers or photography.
Anyone interested in teaching a class is invited to speak with staff at the college to determine the time, duration and cost of the class. It’s the instructor’s decision whether to charge for the class or not.
The new campus, an extension of PWS Community College in Valdez, is also affiliated with the University of Alaska Anchorage.
It is located in a building that formerly housed the Innovative Learning Program building, behind Cordova Jr./Sr. High School, on S. Orca Street, near Pipe Street.
The campus has a full kitchen, classroom and offices.
The local college was formerly located in the high school media center, which limited times when that space was available for classes, said Susan Harding, campus coordinator.
“Now that we have this facility, it’s kinda nice to get these things rolling again,” said Alyssa Kleissler who teaches Spanish at the college.
“Now we can do lots of different things that we couldn’t do in the past,” added Harding.
