KHS ATHLETIC HALL OF FAME INAUGURAL
Roger Schurig was also inducted so of course littlesis Karen and her hubby were there to honor him, and along with them Jane Kelly Robert and her hubby too. I knew a few other folks from the School District Foundation Board, as well as some KHS69 track stars, as my brother was in that class and Captain of the Track Team as well as State Champ Pole Vaulter that year - my one claim to KHS sports fame, so I have to play it up! Also on hand was the older brother of our class-mate Pat Dunbar who accepted the award for Dave Theriot KHS59. It was a wonderful night and hopefully in two years our class will be honored with another HOF Inductee. Thanks so much Jim for letting me tag along! Next year will see the first ever ALUMNI HALL OF FAME so start thinking of your nominees, I have an idea movie & TV stars might be included...just an idea, no one told me that!
And one last thought, Alvin Miller, KHS83, who is regarded as the best athlete in school history, made a wonderful remark that I just have to share - he called Kirkwood "Mayberry with Cable"!
