Seniors lead KHS volleyball into 2013 season
Amy Willis doesn’t want to jinx her Kodiak High School volleyball team, but the veteran coach can’t help but be excited about her 2013 squad. “These guys are going to be great, and if we don’t start great then we are going to finish great,” Willis said.

Our heritage is based on Jesus’ words

I shall endeavor to respond with equal kindness, having done quite a bit more research as was recommended.
