Alaska First Lady Sandy Parnell dished up ice cream sundaes for Petersburg High School Wednesday. It was a lighthearted event that was meant to promote a very serious endeavor in Alaska – The Choose Respect Campaign to end domestic Violence and Sexual Assault. A Petersburg 10th grader won the statewide contest to create a campaign poster. That brought her and her classmates a visit from the First Lady and a couple coolers full of ice cream donated by an Anchorage business. Matt Lichtenstein produced this sound snapshot from the event.
