No sooner had he resigned from the Alaska Human Rights Commission, Marcus Sanders has received an appointment to the Alaska Suicide Prevention Council, where he serves in the capacity of a chaplain.
Sanders said was grateful to Gov. Michael Dunleavy for the appointment.
“I have a heart to serve, and being named to the chaplain position on the council is right in line with my training, my background, and my God-given strengths,” he said.
The Statewide Suicide Prevention Council advises the governor and legislature on issues relating to suicide. In collaboration with communities, faith-based organizations, and public-private entities, the Council works to improve the health and wellness of Alaskans by reducing suicide and its effect on individuals and communities.
