After 31 years in secondary education, I semi-retired from Bishop Kelly in 2010.  When I arrived at BK in 1989, the enrollment was 325 (much less than when we attended) and was approaching 700 when I retired in 2010  It is now almost 775 students.  If you have not already looked at it, Keith has posted a promotional video, BK Draft, on the reunion home page.

Based on the responses that I have received, it sounds like many of you are planning on attending.  I am certainly looking forward to it.
