One memory that the students and teachers were apt to recall was about a local man, Mr. Lawler, father of KES teacher, Mrs. Lawler. The entire class jumped into hurried whispers for their classmate to share the story he’d encountered in his interview. Mrs. Lawler’s father was on the school board as well as a mason. He helped build an addition to the school, and in doing so placed one of his daughter’s tennis shoe into the building. The students also liked to learn that before KES was as large of an establishment as it is today, students were able to pick and choose when they went to class.
Ms. Knightly and Mrs. Roffman were also interviewed during this project, both of whom will be retiring this year. The on-going outcome is truly a testament to KES, their staff, students and their parents.
