Superintendent PJ Caposey said that finding the right person to follow Bryan Vandiver was a tall task noting that Bryan left large shoes to fill. Caposey noted, “It added an element of pressure to this hiring process until we were able to meet and get to know Kenny. I believe we hit a home-run bringing Kenny into our organization. He is community-minded, dependable, and has a demonstrated track record of doing excellent work. I cannot wait to see where he takes our Buildings and Grounds Department.”
