Many of us agree with you.   Not only was Doug Kenney the most popular guy, he was the nicest guy who would give his all to help, anyone and everyone.  As they say, "only the good die young."

However Eva Weischel Hausman has proposed we do a Central High scholarship in Doug's Memory.  We hope to discuss this at our August 17 birthday party,

Many of us went through grammar school, Sheridan School with Doug and onto high school with him.  He was always a very kind, thoughtful and caring person.  We were very proud when he became our Class President.  He died much too young!
