Race continues Keegan's legacy

May 26, 2010 - Dear Editor,

On May 1, the second annual Chuck Keegan Race for the Kids was cosponsored by the Clarkston Foundation and staff of Clarkston Junior High. Chuck taught for Clarkston Community Schools for more than 30 years.

He was also the track coach for much of that time. Throughout his career, he touched the lives of countless students, teachers, and parents.

This was evident in the outpouring of support from the community. Nearly 100 people participated in the event, and more than $3,000 was raised. These funds will be used to establish scholarships for Clarkston students.

We would like to thank Paul Coughlin of Runnin' Gear and John Merz of Graphmark Services. Their help was intrumental in the success of this event. Monetary support was also provided by the A+ Teachers' Store, ATS Project Success, The Learning Experience, Planned Financial Services, Sports Creations, and Waterford Jewelers.

In addition, we are grateful to Clarkston Community Schools for their support of this worthwhile event.

Finally, thanks to Amy Ankrom, Jim Berman, Kevin Breen, Ray Cooper, Denise Hill, Claudia Keglovitz, April Kosin, Mark Magni, Jon Paddock, Debbie Sabo, Wayne Samuel, Alex Sennabaum, and all the other former and current Clarkston school employees who donated their time and talent.

We can think of no better way to honor an outstanding Clarkton teacher who treasured his students, his school, and his community. Chuck's first priority was always "his kids." We are honored to continue his legacy.

Mike Greve, chairman
