The Kennedy High School robotics team, the Nuts and Bolts of Fury, will be competing at the FIRST National Robotics Championship in St. Louis on April 26th to the 29th, after qualifying earlier this year at two regional competitions. The students have set up a GoFundMe page and will be conducting fundraisers at Amalfi’s on April 10 and Texas Road House on April 18, in addition to two car washes, a dunk tank at the school, and a paint night. Kennedy teacher George Flaherty works with the students.
Twenty-six Kennedy High School students recently spent five days in New Orleans, helping construct a Habitat for Humanity home and seeing the sights. The members of the HOPE (Helping People Everywhere) and YES (Young Educators Society) clubs were accompanied by Jahanna Hayes and Cassandra Fann Peirce.
