Governor Sean Parnell appointed a Seward man to the Advisory Council on Libraries.
The council advises the State Library on the Library and Services and Technology Act, and the development and evaluation of library services in Alaska.
Parnell’s office told us that Arthur Walters, of Seward, is a licensed foster care parent. He is a former cub master/outreach coordinator for Seward Cub Scout Pack and a former volunteer on disability awareness training for Seward Elementary School.
Walters also served as a peer counselor for children with National Camps for the Blind, and was a member of the Governor’s Council on Disabilities and Special Education. He studied psychology at the University of Alaska Anchorage.
Walters is reappointed to the disabled representative seat.
