Kenton Middle High School Groundbreaker a Success

Rain couldn’t dampen the spirit of hope at the Kenton Middle-High School groundbreaking event Saturday.

Students were the focus of the groundbreaking event, featuring student performances by the Kenton High School Band and Kenton Top Twenty.

Government & school leaders with construction partners ceremoniously broke ground at the site of the future Kenton Middle-High School. Following the groundbreaking ceremony, The Kenton High School Football Team coordinated a Muddy Tug-of-War event. Food trucks and KCS clubs were hosted by the Business Professionals of America chapter.
