  • Kent School Receives Gift of Custom Sculpture

    On Monday, November 19 the Kent School community gathered for the unveiling of a custom sculpture of the School’s mascot, the Osprey. The sculpture is a gift to the School from the Class of 2019. It is tradition that a graduating class give the school a special gift on their graduation. This year, the Class of 2019 gave their gift early in recognition of Kent School’s Fiftieth Anniversary.

    The sculpture was installed overlooking an athletic field at the entrance to the school. Now all who visit Kent School’s scenic, riverside campus will be greeted by the piece. At the unveiling Eighth Grade student Frank Cantera said, “The Osprey has been the mascot of Kent School since the late 1980’s when it was voted on by the whole student body. It was a natural choice since in this area where we are standing there used to be a windmill that an osprey nested on for many years.” Cantera’s classmate, Isabelle Requena continued, “So today in honor of our beloved mascot and in celebration of Kent’s Fiftieth Anniversary, the Class of 2019 presents this Osprey sculpture.”
