Dr. Michael Karch, the Education Foundation’s “2019 Distinguished Alumnus” inductee presented an impassioned speech to the graduating class, inspiring and motivating them to achieve great heights. He challenged the class to teach, mentor and volunteer, and to see the world, so that they can appreciate what they have. Dr. Karch emphasized that struggle builds character, and that the graduates, now part of “our team”, i.e. the real world, are in a relay race which requires them to become not average, but exceptional.
Dr. Karch was honored earlier in the week at an Education Foundation reception to which Karch friends and family were invited, along with KASD-EF donors. Former KAHS alumnus, parents, administration, or member of the Kutztown Community at large may submit names to the Education Foundation for future consideration as a Distinguished Alumnus.
