The current Historical Committee of the KHS Alumni Association held its first meeting in February, 1998.  We started by taking an inventory of existing materials in the KHS library, the district office, and the guidance department.  We had several old 16 mm films transferred to videos and copied articles and photos from old scrapbooks in the library.  One of our goals is to continue to provide a source of historical information about KHS by administering a historical data base and artifacts file.  We would greatly appreciate having donations from alumni or other sources to aid in this quest.  The original items can be copied and returned, if so desired.

Using items collected in our archives, we have helped with many exhibits.  These have been used at class reunions, alumni meetings, fund raising activities, the dedication of the new middle school, and other functions.

Our committee is also very proud of the many oral interviews we have done of those associated with the Kennett schools.  These interviews include former teachers, students, administrators, secretaries, and others.  To date we have more than 50 interviews transcribed and included in our archives.

The Historical Committee meets every 2 months throughout the year and as needed to make up new displays and access materials.  If you or anyone you know has been a KHS "collector" and has items to share, please contact one of our members - Myrna Fridy, Walt and Eleanor Paynter, and Jo Mason.
