Madison Eckhart, a graduate of Cedaredge High School, recently graduated from Northern Arizona University with a bachelor's degree in nursing. She has accepted a position in Kotzebue, Alaska, in the Arctic Circle. She works in several departments in this extremely small rural hospital. The town is only accessible by plane or boat (once the ice has melted).
Eckhart has already used her days off to enjoy challenging kayaking adventures alone in the Inside Passage.
