A message about the recent tornadoes

Kent Faculty, Staff, and Students,

Our thoughts are with all those who have experienced property destruction, houselessness, injury, missing loved ones, and loss of loved ones due to the unprecedented devastation caused by the tornadoes in Kentucky and surrounding states Saturday evening. No words can express the magnitude of the destruction and upheaval some in our state are experiencing as a result of this tragedy. The individuals, families, and communities affected will need our support in the days, months, and years to come. A list of organizations accepting donations to help those impacted can be found here.

The Kent School is considering a trip to help with rebuilding efforts over Winter Break. If you are interested in learning more about the volunteer trip, please enter your contact information by following this link

To those affected directly, we are with you. Don't hesitate to contact us if the Kent School can be of help to you.
