Faces of Hope: Dr. Chris Stack

Introducing our fourth Face of Hope, Dr. Chris Stack.

Through the Faces of Hope initiative, we seek to recognize and honor some of those people and entities that have been critical to the success of Hope Academy, Fairbanks’ recovery high school. The initiative seeks to tell Hope Academy’s story over the past 10 years through the stories of those who have been involved in helping to create Hope Academy’s history. Additionally, we hope it introduces even more people to Hope Academy’s mission through the meaningful stories of these faces who are so well known around Hope Academy.

Though a decorated military veteran and an orthopedic surgeon with an MBA, Dr. Stack knew nothing about running a school. What he did know was that, through his time serving on the Fairbanks board of directors, a recovery high school was sorely needed here for students struggling with addiction and failing at school.
