Kenney Legacy European Trip


The Kenney Legacy Trip, named and funded by the family of Charlie Kenney '06, honors their son's memory and strives to impart his love of country and reverence for Americans' military service and sacrifice. According to the Kenneys, "The notion that students can learn profound lessons about history by visiting sites such as the Normandy beaches" serves as the program's "foundational idea"...  Three to four participants will be selected this fall through a nomination and application process; these young men will comprise the fourth "generation" of Kenney Trip travelers who are privileged to take part in this all-expense-paid trip to Paris, London, and battle sites and cemeteries in Belgium and France. Form IV and Form V boys interested in being considered for this trip should speak with a current history teacher and ask to be considered for nomination. If a boy is currently not enrolled in a history course, then he may speak with a previous history teacher.
