We also wish Kevin Kelley and his family all the best as he transitions to his new responsibilities. Our coaches would be the first to say how inspired they have been by Kevin’s innovative and passionate approach to the game and how much they have learned from him over the years.

It is always particularly gratifying to see loyal, long-serving members of the PA Community take on new responsibilities as they continue to serve the School and our students. Anthony, Jason, Madison, and Adam truly embody PA’s Core Values of excellence, integrity, respect, and responsibility and serve as outstanding role models for our students and for everyone with whom they work. We know that they (and our coaches in every sport) will continue to build on PA’s stellar record of success.
