Talk about hands-on . . . 

In February, the Career Center's E.M.T. class took delivery of a retired ambulance, graciously donated by Superior Ambulance of Michigan. The students have been extremely excited to put the ambulance to good use, practicing such things as loading and unloading a patient from the ambulance, learning what it's like to work within a confined space, treating a patient while transporting to the hospital. The E.M.T. class will benefit from this piece of equipment for years to come. The students and staff would like to extend a heartfelt thanks to Mr. Andy Brown of Superior Ambulance, and Mr. Blaine Honeycutt, Taylor School Board President, and those who made this opportunity happen - Thank you!

EMT's Ambulance - 2017

Kyle Wright, Violet Ramage, Makayla Reed, and Dominick Brock went up against other finalists in the Leadership and Teamwork event and Marketing Communications competition. Kennedy High School did not have any International Qualifiers but all students left the conference with enhanced skills in professionalism, independence, leadership, and teamwork. 

Merwin's Hats and Scarves - Career Center 2017

Hats for the Homeless

Mrs. Lisa Merwin, Robotics TNT 280 parent and former Kennedy teacher, donated 66 hats and several scarves to a recent clothing drive to help the homeless during the winter months. Mrs. Merwin not only donated all of these items…she actually handmade each and every item. Some hats were crotchet while others were knitted. All of the hats and scarves were made while Mrs. Merwin spent countless hours at home and in the hospital caring for her husband, Mr. Keith Merwin. Mr. Merwin was also a teacher at John F. Kennedy High School. Mr. Merwin sadly passed away on Thursday February 16th. The Career Center staff and students would like extend our prayers and support to the entire Merwin family. We would also like to say thank you once again to Lisa Merwin for her kind and giving heart.
