FAIRBANKS — Lynda Sather has retired from her position as Fairbanks communications manager for Alyeska Pipeline Service Co.
Sather, whose last day on the job was Friday, had been with Alyeska for 5 1/2 years. Alyeska, a consortium of oil companies, operates the trans-Alaska oil pipeline system.
As Fairbanks communications manager, Sather said she was a strong advocate for Fairbanks both inside the company and out. Before working for Alyeska, Sather spent 22 years at the Fairbanks North Star Borough School District in community and public relations.
While with Alyeska, Sather was a member of the Greater Fairbanks Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors, though she has now resigned that seat.
She is president of the executive committee of the United Way of the Tanana Valley and said she plans to continue her involvement with the agency.
Sather has been in Fairbanks since 1976 and received a master’s degree in professional communication from the University of Alaska Fairbanks.
She said she plans to stay in Fairbanks. Alyeska has not named a new Fairbanks communications manager.
