Well it’s official! Kenston now has an Alumni Association. Mr. Tewksbury, Mrs. McGrath, and Mrs. Miller, are responsible for the formation of the association. Credit also goes to Kenston alum Matt English and Board member Neysa Gaskin for securing tax exempt 501c3 status for the Alumni Association.The main idea or goal of The Kenston Alumni Association is to develop an organization that keeps Alumni connected, informed and involved with all things Kenston. Thousands of young men and women have been graduating from Kenston since 1953, connecting all graduates with that one common bond. The association hopes to engage those graduates and provide them access to other alumni. “After you graduate you lose touch with many people that you grew up with in the hallways and classrooms. We want to help re-kindle those relationships. We also want to provide a platform where new graduates can access and network with older graduates. Leveraging that common bond may help a graduate land a job or get a referral into college…you name it, it can happen through a strong network of inspired alumni,” said Mr. Tewksbury.
Kenston Alumni Association will be hosting events and keeping Alumni informed through their website, newsletters, and social media. There are plans set in place to create a “Kenston Museum” which would be filled with everything from old year books to old sport trophies, uniforms, photos, playbills, and graduation flyers. Just about anything and everything! Also, there will be a Kenston Hall of Fame! The plan is to have the first Hall of Fame class induction in the spring of 2018. The members of the association have been working hard and their hard work shows. The news is exciting and something to look forward to. “We all should be proud of our time at Kenston, whether it was for one year, or thirteen. If we achieve our goals, the Kenston Alumni Association will successfully connect generations of proud graduates and help to further their experiences, friendships and love of Bomber Nation!” ~ Mr. Tewksbury.
