Meet the Alumni Board

In 2014, Kellenberg Memorial established its first official Alumni Association Board, the mission of which is to provide opportunities for Firebird alumni to maintain contact with each other and the school. The officers of the board serve for two years. Please find below the members of the 2021-2023 Alumni Board. We thank them all for their continued support of Kellenberg Memorial.

“Having an education rooted in our Catholic faith provided a solid foundation for me to carry throughout life, and despite all the challenges I’ve faced, my faith helped me realize that anything is possible with God by my side. I truly believe my experience at Kellenberg equipped me to make confident decisions in both my professional and personal life, and I’m excited to share how life beyond high school doesn’t come down to black and white decisions anymore because success can be found in many ways.”

“It has been an honor to have been asked to join the Kellenberg Memorial Alumni Board. I am very proud to have attended a school where academic excellence and morality go hand-in-hand. I am impressed to see so many Kellenberg graduates whom after college have returned to teach. Fond memories and strengthened faith gained while they were students draw them back and inspire them to pass the legacy on to others. My goal is to reunite alumni with each other in support of KMHS’s ever-growing community.”
