On Thursday, March 1, 2017, The Kiski School held a special gathering at Coohills Restaurant in Denver, Colorado for alumni, current and past parents, and supporters of the School. This wonderful event was generously hosted by alumnus, class captain, trustee, and current parent, Kyle H. Webb ’86.
Headmaster Chris Brueningsen, and Associate Headmaster for Institutional Advancement Steve Szilagyi ’88, were in attendance to give the group personal updates about Kiski, the ongoing success of the alumni legacy admission program, and the continued successful implementation of the School’s current $27 million Capital Campaign which has been raising capital investments directly supporting dorm renovations and expansions, campus improvement projects, curricular advances and innovations, student scholarships, the newly added indoor and outdoor athletic facilities, and the School’s endowment.
Mr. Brueningsen and Mr. Szilagyi supplied the group with current information about the new Leadership Institute for Boys at Kiski as well as the recently launched fundraising project specifically focused on creating the new and state-of-the-art Zeigler Science and Engineering Center at Kiski. In addition, during the event in Denver, Kyle Webb shared a personal, positive, and engaging update with the group from his unique perspective as an alumnus, class captain, trustee, and current parent of Cameron Webb ’17. Kyle reported to the group that he remains very pleased with his son’s experience at Kiski, that he is proud to be positively connected with the School at this exciting time, happy to be playing a part in Kiski’s current renaissance, and upbeat about the School’s prospects for the future.
On Saturday, March 3, 2017 a group of Kiski alumni, friends, and supporters of the School gathered together to enjoy a warm, sun-filled, and “blue sky” day of skiing on the beautiful slopes of Vail, Colorado. Rick Case ’86 and Kyle Webb ’86 continue to be exceptional skiers and as such they stepped up to be the official “ski leaders” for the Kiski outing. Rick and Kyle expertly led the Kiski ski group on many gorgeous, leg-burning, and exciting runs.
At the end of the skiing day, when everyone in the group was ready for some rest and relaxation, Rick and Christine Case graciously hosted an enjoyable gathering for all at their place in Vail. Steve Szilagyi ’88, and his son, Zander ’21, were in attendance and supplied the group with updates about the continued success of Kiski’s admission and advancement programs as well as the new and exciting Leadership Institute for Boys, and the School’s campus renovations and continued progress. A great time was had by all in Denver and in Vail, Colorado.
Alumni, parents, and friends of Kiski attending the special events in Colorado included the following: John Beiler ’86; Joe Breman ’63; Matt Breman ’86; Chris Brueningsen (Headmaster); Christine and Rick Case ’86; Chris Friedberg ’85; Mike Murphy ’84 (current Kiski parent); Tony Prenni ’88; Kevin Remaley ’79; Paul Siker ’79 (current trustee); Bill Simmermon ’80; Steve Szilagyi ’88 (Associate Headmaster for Advancement); Zander Szilagyi ’21; Allison and Kyle Webb ’86 (current Kiski parents); Carol and Barney Wilmoth ’79.
The Kiski Advancement Team has already received requests from alumni and supporters to create a similar “Colorado adventure weekend” once again in the near future. Consequently, the advancement team will be working with Kyle and Rick to plan another Kiski skiing adventure in the mountains of Colorado for alumni and friends of the School.
