Karol Kriens

Karol writes, "I am very delighted to have been selected for the UAS Alumni Board and excited to have an opportunity to serve UAS students, staff and alumni. I was a public school teacher early in my career and grew up in a family where education was important. I ended up with four university degrees and have worked in careers for which the degrees prepared me. Education opens many doors. I have retired from my early careers and have begun others. Working for the Statewide University of Alaska office while stationed in Juneau, I was fortunate enough to visit the Ketchikan campus and Sitka campus, seeing many successful educational programs at these two sites and having worked on the Juneau campus, experienced the daily Juneau campus educational progress. After my work with the University of Alaska, I moved to a management position with a marine services company that has a large presence in Alaska. I manage marine engineers that make environmental impact observations on the cruise ships that visit the Southeast. I love working for programs that make positive differences and improve the world around us and know as an UAS Alumni Board member, I will bring my positive attitude to help keep the group vibrant and growing.

Greg Lange

Greg Lange was introduced to the grandeur of Juneau by his mother, Nancy (McDowell) Lange, who was born and raised in Juneau and has had family in the area since 1928. He graduated from Juneau-Douglas High School and UAJ (now UAS), a true home-town boy. While at UAJ, he earned his Bachelor’s Degree in Accounting (1984) while working for the Department of Public Safety as an Accounting Clerk.

Greg became a teacher in 1995, and has been in the education field ever since. He is very excited to be an active alum working directly with UAS’ newly-established advisory committee for the UA College of Education. He is currently a high school teacher in Edmonds, WA presenting “math renewal” to struggling and challenged freshman and sophomores.

Greg has also carried his Juneau and Eaglecrest-bred love of the mountains and outdoors into his professional work through programs designed to introduce his students to the snow. For 12 years, he worked with a ski bus company that coordinated and transported almost 600 Seattle middle and high school students to local ski areas on Friday nights. Finally, remaining a torch-bearer for the spirit of Juneau, Greg has been active in coordinating the Annual Seattle-based Juneau-Douglas Picnic each July since 2007, which is in its 77th year.

Serving on the UAS Alumni Association Board of Directors allows Greg to positively contribute to UAS, Juneau, and Southeast Alaska through active engagement with UAS staff and alumni and friends, who add so much vitality to the university and region.
