Tom Klaameyer originally became an Alaskan resident in 1989, stationed at Elmendorf AFB. After separating from the Air Force, Tom stayed in the state to raise a family, attend the University of Alaska, Anchorage, and enjoy the Alaskan outdoors. For the last 24 years, Tom has served as a dedicated high school social studies teacher in the Anchorage School District, teaching at both Bartlett and Eagle River High Schools. Tom believes that, despite the challenges Alaska’s public education system continues to face, our students provide hope for Alaska's future. Tom has been a member of the Trust since its inception and will continue to be a tireless advocate for all members as a Trustee.
