Unalaska students are back at school Tuesday, including 5-year-old Stephen Black.

Over the past year, he's prepared for Eagle's View Elementary Achigaalux by accepting the library's challenge to read "1,000 Books Before Kindergarten."

He submitted his final reading log last week and became the first Unalaskan to accomplish the feat.

"Triceratops, Diplodocus, Tyrannosaurus rex, and also Spinosaurus …"

Stephen Black is browsing Unalaska's public library, picking out books and naming all the dinosaurs he knows.

Unalaska has welcomed a handful of new community leaders in the last few months.

That includes Joanna “JJ” Hinderberger, the new principal at Eagle’s View Elementary Achigaalux.

KUCB's Laura Kraegel sat down with Hinderberger to ask how she’s settling in to her first full-time job as a principal.
