Long-time Kenai Peninsula College psychology professor and local Democratic Party activist Marge Hays died Sunday. She was 84.
Word spread quickly online and among friends Sunday night that Hays had passed away.
Tributes and memories came in from around the country. One friend posted early Monday morning from Indiana, praising Hays for her positive, cheerful outlook, and credited her for helping him get hired as counselor, and later launching him on a “second career” in teaching.
