Over 500 runners and 70 volunteers braved the rain on June 1st to honor the memory of Brian Dugan. Thanks to their efforts, two $1,000 scholarships were awarded to Kenmore West seniors Taylor Santomauro and Rebecca Crane in memory of a wonderful teacher, coach, and friend.

The Ken-Ton School Board has approved a grass-roots drive to name the Kenmore West auditorium in honor of Samuel “Jerry” Starr. Mr. Starr, who started the musical theatre tradition at KW, passed away last summer at the age of 78.
In a letter to the board supporting the move, Brian Dana wrote in part:
““The impact Mr. Starr had on generations of students is staggering. Onstage and backstage at Kenmore West became a haven for students involved in the arts . . . Whether he was called Mr. Starr, Jerry or S. J., his name was synonymous with [theater] at Kenmore West for decades. Although he is no longer with us, we know the Samuel J. Starr Auditorium would be a place where future generations can carry on his theatrical legacy.”
The dedication ceremony will be held Wednesday, April 4th at 6:00PM.
