Welcome to Caught Doing Something Good, where KNOM shines the spotlight on youth in Western Alaska. Every month, we interview students from the region and chat about the things they’ve been doing to positively impact their community.

This month we feature Demi Levi of Saint Michael, whose competitive spirit serves her well in the classroom and during the Native Youth Olympic games.
