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!
