Kenyon in Quotes

"There is little in our history that is beyond dispute, there is much about which good and wise people have disagreed. Put rather differently, our past has witnessed historical revisions, and this process will and should continue." —Former President Robert A. Oden Jr.

Kenyon in Quotes

"Will Kenyon still exist as a collection of buildings and people on an Ohio hilltop twenty-five, fifty, or one hundred years from now? The future, of course, has a way of surprising us, but I believe it will. The campus ideal, introduced here by Philander Chase almost one hundred seventy-five years ago, will prevail." —Tom Stamp '73

Snell and his wife left South Carolina for Seattle, where he serves as deputy regional flight surgeon for the FAA Northwest and Mountain Region, covering seven states, 90,000 pilots and 1,500 air traffic controllers. “Not much in the way of flying — only a desk,” David observes, “but more than enough angst from controllers and pilots. Now in the position to certify senior airline pilots that I flew with in the USAF, back in the day when we both had the rank of captain. We’ll miss the ongoing company and tales from J. Scott Douglas and Debra, permanent residents of Hilton Head Island.”

Sante Matteo, Oxford, Ohio, shared some charming lines of poetry “composed for the 2022 combined 50th reunion of the 1970, ’71 and ’72 classes,” which begin, “The first of Kenyon’s female Owls / Were met with hoots and cheers and howls.” William J. Williams, Laurel, Maryland, writes, “May was a special month. After 47 years, I retired from service in the Department of Defense — 30 years in the Air Force and 17 as a civilian — and 10 days later welcomed the birth of our first granddaughter.”
