After more than six decades, it’s official! Anacortes resident Wallie V. Funk was acknowledged officially as a UW graduate at a ceremony conducted on June 10 by the Department of Communication. It’s been 62 years since Funk last banged about the campus as a student. Photo courtesy of UW photographer Kristina Courtnage Bowman. See AnacortesToday blog for details.

About Steve Berentson
A fourth generation Skagit County native who was moved kicking and screaming from this island community in 1960. I finally reclaimed an Anacortes address in 1980, and I have been in constant celebration of my return since that time. Many of us who call Anacortes home love Fidalgo Island for its natural assets: among them are rugged beaches, pristine lakes, thousands of acres of forestland and some awesome views of the Skagit Valley and surrounding islands. Another element of my love affair with this community is its people, both natives and immigrants. They will “star” in many of my journal entries.
