At the Blackout football game on Friday, September 16, Kirk Purvis, President of the Thornton Academy Alumni Board, presented the “Unsung Hero Award: Volunteers of the Year” to three very deserving individuals: Bill Kany ’77, Ken Janson ’72 and Kathy Santamore ’80.
These alumni have worn several hats around Thornton Academy for many years and all three currently serve on the Board of Trustees. Most prominently, the recipients of the award have been central figures in recent years for their work on the annual TA Auction, which has collectively raised over $650,000 for various TA projects. They are caring, committed, and selfless. Each brings a unique set of skills to the table. They never take a back seat, and are always willing to do whatever is needed.
The Alumni Board and Thornton Academy community thank Bill, Ken, and Kathy for all of their hard work and support!
