Re-connecting with family

Twin sisters Eva and Sarah DeLappe

Volunteer Eva DeLappe (pictured, left) had a special guest earlier this spring: her twin sister Sarah (right), who spent a week visiting Nome. The week included a special celebration: both sisters’ birthday.

The two also co-hosted an on-air music show, went snowshoeing near Nome, and traveled together to the community of Unalakleet (YOU-nuh-luh-kleet) to report on the Native Youth Olympics, a popular local sporting event. Sarah also donated some time within our studios, contributing her voice to the educational “spots,” or PSAs, that KNOM produces.

Visits like these help to bolster the spirits of our intrepid volunteers, and they help to make our vitally-needed volunteer program possible. Welcome, Sarah!
