 First ever King’s Alumni Football Reunion a celebration of champions

Jim Shapiro started coaching at King’s in 1994, and his mission for the program has always been clear and simple: To Build Champions While Pursuing Championships.

Some of these champions returned to King’s on January 21 at our first ever King’s Alumni Football party. Although the game was shown on three giant screens in Schirmer Auditorium, most of the time was spent catching up with old teammates; the “band of brothers”, as Shap would say. We would love to make the King’s Alumni Football Party an annual event—stay tuned for the next alumni football party!

 

 

Join us for King’s Schools’ 35th Annual Benefit Auction | March 16, 2018

 

Join us for a Knight Under the Big Top!

We want to invite you to King’s 35th Annual Benefit Auction on March 16. The funds raised will help grow the teacher endowment fund and provide financial aid to students. With over 1,300 students at King’s from Preschool to High school, this fund more important than ever!

Please visit our auction website where you can donate a silent or live auction item, give a cash donation or advertise your business in the auction catalog. In fact, if every alumni were able to give $35 to celebrate the 35th Annual King’s Benefit Auction, it would make an enormous impact for students and teachers!

We are so grateful to all of King’s Schools Alumni—your legacy, honor and faith live on today in classrooms and our campus.

Celebrate with Us!

 

Alumni Feature: Sharon Kay Alexander, class of 1959

Alumna Sharon Kay Alexander knows better than anyone that within 10 years of opening, King’s Schools already had a national reputation for excellence in Christian education. Growing up in South Dakota in the care of godly grandparents, Sharon’s world was changed when word of King’s Schools reached her family. Her grandparents wanted her to have a Christian education, so Sharon moved across the country to board at King’s, joining the class of 1959 as a junior.

During those two short years as a King’s student, Sharon was involved in everything from the Honor Society to Homecoming Court, serving as Student Body Secretary, a member of the Torchbearers Club and as a regular participant in a live Saturday morning program on KGDN, Mike Martin’s first radio station. Her favorite activity as a student was singing in Mr. Staley’s travelling choir.

“Mr. Staley nurtured my love for music and the worship of God through music. Consequently I have had the joy of singing or playing piano for most of my life,” Sharon said. One of her most cherished memories from King’s was travelling with the Tri-C trio to Montana to sing at the dedication of a new radio station there.
