YHL is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Calista Corporation. Based in Huntsville, Alabama, Yulista is the largest subsidiary and the farthest away from Alaska. Staff wanted to support Calista Shareholders and Descendants beyond the revenue they generate. In 2014, about 1,700 pounds of school supplies were donated to students in St. Mary’s and Crow Village Sam School.

  • Margaret Pohjola: “It is wonderful to see Calista staff so involved with our region. I am grateful to see our staff put our primary goal into action beyond scholarships and internships. We also give deep thanks to SBA Global, Lynden and STG Incorporated for donating shipping services.”
  • Josh Herren, YHL President: “Calista’s primary strategic goal is to increase services and benefits to our Shareholders and Descendants. As managers we must work hard to provide profits. As moms and dads, it is important to support youth in the Calista Region.”
