Klein to head local Big Brothers Big Sisters

Joann Flora, longtime executive director of Big Brothers Big Sisters, announced her replacement Wednesday at the Greater Ketchikan Chamber of Commerce luncheon.

Flora says this will be her last Chamber meeting, and she will leave for Juneau on Monday, where she will join Goldbelt Inc. as the director of tourism marketing.

Flora says she appreciates the support that Chamber members have shown to Big Brothers Big Sisters.

Flora says that Gretchen Klein is the new community director for Big Brothers Big Sisters. Klein, who was chosen as one of the Alaska Journal of Commerce’s Top 40 Under 40 in 2012, started the Big Brothers Big Sisters program 11 years ago.
