“Expanding our actual school which will go all the way to 550 students, putting in a brand new soccer field in this neighborhood, and a health clinic, and an early learning center,” Executive Director Tom Cole says, “so our capital campaign is really creating an anchor for a promised neighborhood here in Liberty Park.”
The Holly Theatre restoration project also received a $2,500 grant from the Avista Foundation, among other Oregon organizations.
Executive Producer Kristin Hosfelt anchors NBC5 News weeknights at 5 and 6. Originally from the Bay Area, Kristin earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Broadcast Journalism from San Jose State University.
She came to KOBI-TV/NBC5 from Bangor, Maine where she was the evening news anchor. Kristin has won multiple journalism awards including Best Feature Reporting in the State of Maine. In 2017, her investigation on lead pipes in Medford’s water system was named Best News Series by the Oregon Association of Broadcasters.
When Kristin is not sharing the news, she’s traveling, hunting down the best burrito, or buried in a Jodi Picoult novel. She’s also a Green Bay Packers shareholder; if you see her out and about she’d be happy to tell you the story of how a California girl became a cheesehead.
