It's A Small World

Andrea and LaurenWebmaster's note: Who says it is a small world? Lauren Sabo (KHS 2007) and Andrea Phillips (KHS 1990) sure think so. They both happened to be in the same country (Nepal) at the same time, and both happened to sign up for the same hiking trip.

Lauren Sabo (2007 Kenston graduate) wrote:

Two Kenston graduates were recently introduced to each other on a backpacking trip through Nepal, in April 2014, showing just how small our world actually is. Lauren Sabo, who graduated in 2007, and Andrea 'Andi' Phillips, who graduated in 1990, never expected to meet someone in Nepal who grew up walking the same high school hallways as the other in Ohio.

Kenston 'Out West' trip rocks education

Giving up cell phones, daily showers and home-cooked meals for more than three weeks might not be a dream getaway for some, but Kenston students who embark on the "Out West" trip say it's one of the best things they've ever done.

Flirting with grizzly and black bears during an 18-mile hike to Lake Solitude in Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming and conquering July snow on the scenic Going-to-the-Sun Road in Glacier National Park in Montana were among the highlights of this year's geological field experience.

What Happens to Our Website Over Summer?

Emily LambOur site is much like a yearbook. When school let’s out for summer our site is sitting here waiting for you any time you want to reminisce. Because our site is run by students, and students are on vacation, there is not much new content added over the summer. Mr. C. posts informational type items when people send them to him. "It is so nice to know that even though the year is over, we can go back during the summer and still view all the pictures and articles from the school year," said Junior Sarah Coughlin.
