Alumni Association Updates

Our newly-organized Theodore Roosevelt High School Alumni Association is hosting a booth at Roosevelt’s Homecoming football game on Friday, October 16.  President Dave Wyse, ’77, invites all Roosevelt alums to stop by for light refreshments and take the opportunity to connect with former classmates—and join the Alumni Association!  Lifetime alumni or friend memberships are just $35, and seniors over age 65 are free.

Other officers include Vice President Sherry Joy, ’67; Recording Secretary Shari Jeffers, ’73; Membership SecretaryJennifer Anders, ’92; and Treasurer Paul Sellman, ’67. 

All current or interested members are encouraged to attend an Alumni Association meeting on Tuesday, October 6, at 7 p.m. in the Roosevelt High School library.  The idea for an Alumni Association grew from the district’s five-year strategic planning sessions as a way to promote the tradition and pride of the Kent City Schools. 

For more information, e-mail, visit the Alumni Association link on the district website at or call 330-676-TRHS and leave a message.

Welcome to our New Website

We are pleased to announce that we have completed the new website for Kent City Schools. We believe this dramatic renovation is going to offer our parents, students, teachers, and community greater access to our schools through the internet. We’ve revised the look and content of our website, including new features such as calendars, teacher blogs, and much more!

As with any major construction project, there may be changes or modifications. Over the next few months, you will notice new features, up-to-date information, and increased presence from teachers and their classrooms. So, please keep checking back to see what’s new and send your thoughts and suggestions to Courtney Baliman.

Friend of Kent City Schools

Three Kent families, who have hosted teachers from the People’s Republic of China, were honored with a Friend of Kent City Schools award from the Kent Board of Education. This is the third year that the Kent City Schools has participated in the Ohio Department of Education’s “Visiting Chinese Guest Teacher” program.
