Where are they now?

Paula Marie Powell: A kayak adventure with a hammerhead shark

In this segment, WTIP’s Rhonda Silence speaks to a woman who certainly raises the question in a different way: Where in the world is she now?

Listen as Rhonda speaks with Paula Marie Powell, a 1997 Cook County High School graduate who spent much of her childhood at her family’s Chippewa Inn resort on the Canadian side of Saganaga Lake, about her travels. Paula now spends summers living and working in Grand Portage with Grand Portage-Isle Royale Transportation Lines but travels to warmer climates in the winter.

WTIP reached her in Panama to learn about an adventure she had on a trek to Pompano Beach, Florida—an exciting off-shore encounter with a hammerhead shark. Click here to see Paula’s video of the event.
