MILITARY HALL OF HONOR UNVEILED
View display above
The Kenston Alumni Association, in partnership with the District, has designated the digital screen outside of the gym in the High School as The Military Hall of Honor.

We are proud of our brave and selfless service members who graduated from Kenston and wish to recognize their service on behalf of the United States of America with a program entitled the Kenston School District Military Hall of Honor.

The images of those who have, or are serving, will be displayed continuously as a commemorative dedication to their country. We thank all those who participated in this effort and we know there are so many more Alumni who are not yet included in this display.

We need your help in honoring Veteran and active members of the Armed Forces that attended Kenston, Auburn or Bainbridge Schools, please complete an  electronic submission form . Then email a picture of the Veteran (in uniform) to  alumni@kenstonapps.org  or deliver by mail or in person to the Board of Education Office.
