Employee News:

20160625_110459AES and the Engineering and Professional Services group would like to congratulate Chastity Olemaun on obtaining her bachelor’s degree in Business Administration while working full-time.
Chastity has been with AES for more than nine years, and with the engineering group since 2009; working her way up from an intern administrative assistant to office manager. Her next goal will be to obtain her Master’s in Business Administration. Ultimately, she wants to seek out an opportunity that will benefit ASRC Shareholders. A run for the ASRC Board may very well be in her future…

“I want to ensure they have sustainability with jobs, finances and their own personal lifestyles. I believe that our people, Iñupiaq, have overcome a lot of obstacles and have so much more to offer the world. I would like to incorporate Iñupiaq culture, traditions and learning opportunities to those I work with on a daily basis. This can be accomplished by culture moments at the beginning of a meeting, Iñupiaq culture presentations for clients, and awareness to the entire organization of Iñupiaq seasonal activities.”

Additionally, Chastity would like to thank the Arctic Education Foundation (AEF) and the entire North Slope community for their support.

“AEF has enabled to me to grow as an individual and as an employee of AES Alaska, Inc. During my years of indecisiveness I was able to go to school part-time and/or take a break while still being employed and utilizing AEF as a source of funding for employment training. I am very thankful for the support of AEF as well as the whole North Slope Community! I look forward to continually serving my community and giving back to those who have helped me along the way. I finally did it! First Olemaun to receive a four-year undergraduate degree.”
