Billboards Share KAHS Good News & Congratulations!

This month, the KASD Education Foundation sent a message of congratulations to Kutztown Area High School in three “big ways”, posting billboards at two entry points to Kutztown, and a third on Route 78. The billboards share our sincere congratulations to the teachers, staff, and students of KAHS. They also convey to the general public the great educational experience that is available to residents of Kutztown, PA, and we want everyone to know!

Ron Druckenmiller, Class of 1956, Remembered via an Annual Basketball Award

Over 25 families have developed KASD Ed Foundation scholarships in memory of their loved ones. This year, the Ron Druckenmiller Family created an annual award for “a graduating senior men’s basketball player who demonstrates selfless leadership and challenges himself and others to be the best they can be on and off the court.” The Education Foundation thanks Ron’s wife Judy, brothers Tom & Jay, son Dean, and daughter Cheryl, for their thoughtful donation in memory of Ronald F. Druckenmiller.

KASD Education Foundation to Celebrate 20th Year!

The KASD Education Foundation was created twenty years ago in October 2000, by three Kutztown High School Alumni: Dr. Brenda Winkler, then Superintendent of the Kutztown Area School District, the late DeLight Breidegam Jr., co-founder of Deka Battery, now East Penn Manufacturing, and Attorney Robert P. Grim. Today, the Foundation remains strongly committed to its original mission, “to enhance educational opportunities in the district’s schools and communities, and to recognize the superior achievements of districts students and alumni.”
