Keenan’s Parent Teacher Student Association team and administrators came together to hold Keenan’s first annual Community Cookout. The Cookout took place on Nov 4, 2017, at 11:00 A.M. in Keenan’s student parking lot.

“The purpose of the cookout was to bring the community together,” Mr. Vondre’ T. Whaley, principal, said.

Many students came out and supported the school.

“It was a good event to have for the community and schools,” Whaley said.

At the cookout there were vendors, ice cream trucks, local businesses, band performances, kickball, football and dancers. The cookout ended at 3 P.M. The goal is to make it an annual event.

“Yea, I really did enjoy the cookout,” Mr. Ron Webb, assistant principal said. “I thought it was a fun festival event.”

The cookout was a great success, with good turnout from the community and schools. There were games, free blood pressure checks, music and food.

“Yes, there were many different activities that took place that got everyone involved,” Junior Louis Anderson said.

It was a great way for the school to come together and have fun.
