Plans are coming together for the 50th anniversary celebration of Waterford Kettering High School, which is scheduled for June 22-23.
According to the event’s official Facebook page, the celebration will include an alumni concert with former members of Kettering choirs and bands, as well as a Kettering memorabilia museum with artifacts donated by alumni.
There will also be a robotics team demonstration, as well as a time for former teams and clubs to reunite.
Tours of the building will also be given and work by current students and their clubs will also be on display.
Visitors will have the chance to swim in the school’s pool, as well as purchase Kettering apparel and other memorabilia.
Also just added to the festivities is the renaming of the school’s football and baseball fields in honor of long-time Kettering football coach Jim Larkin and former Kettering baseball coach Tom Bryce.
There is also a Kettering alumni book, which is now for sale, featuring stories written by the school’s Advanced Placement language arts and journalism students, who are taught by teacher Brian Wilson.
According to the Facebook page, the book tells the story of the school through profiles of some of the school’s alumni, as well as coverage of some current Kettering teachers who are also alumni.
The book also includes a DVD that was put together by the video class that is taught by Jesse McLean. The DVD includes a video tour led by celebration organizers Hal Farah and Ken Frenkel.
To pick up a copy of the alumni book, patrons should visit room 501 at Kettering or go online to yearbookordercenter.com and use the code 13827.
The cost of the book is $20, with an extra $3.50 fee for credit card purchases online.
