The program was developed by Larry Kiesling and sponsored by the City of Kenedy and the 4B Corporation. The program’s sports camps which included football, baseball, track, softball, t-ball, boys and girls basketball, and volleyball were all offered to young athletes who attend school in Kenedy or whose parents pay taxes to the Kenedy School District. All of the camps were free to the eligible students.
This was the third year for the summer camps in Kenedy, and Mr. Kiesling would like to thank Manuel de la Garza for all his help with organizing the camps. His assistance has been invaluable. Mr. Kiesling would also like to thank the Kenedy Chamber of Commerce for their financial donation and the City of Kenedy the use of its facilities. Thanks also to Kenedy ISD, Superintendent Brad Lane, Mr. Randy Tiemann, and Coach Lin Havron for the use of the school’s facilities. And of course, thank you to all of the participants, coaches, and assistants that helped to make the year successful. It has taken a huge commitment to attend and coach sports camps during the summer, but the results of all the hard work will certainly have a positive impact. It takes a village to make a program like this a success, and Kenedy’s village certainly has much to be proud of.
