In the beginning our founder Ron Kesselring had organized class reunions and with the help and suggestions from retired teachers Pam Young and Elston Elston it was strongly suggested for him to start an alumni association. Working together with Pam Young and former Principal Richard Norman, Ron had started the first of many alumni events to come and with so many Senn friends, the name of the alumni association clearly became Senn Friends Forever. After all, at each Senn Alumni Event we strongly encourage alums of multi class years to meet new friends, both younger and older and soon they will and shall remain Senn Friends Forever.
Meet your Senn Friends Forever Alumni Committee
Our highly dedicated staff ensures the best out of each reunion & event that we host and that's our promise!
