Spy Eye: An Outdoor Campus Opens at the Middle School


Kent County Middle School unveiled its new outdoor campus today in a brief ceremony. The new facilities include tennis, basketball and wallboard courts, a 1/3 mile paved walking track, exercise stations, sports’ fields and landscaping. New fencing (meeting ADA standards) encloses the area, and additionally, provides easy access to the community. Project costs exceeded $250,000, which was funded via grants through Maryland DNR ($230,000), the Town of Chestertown, Kent County Commissioners, and Kent County Public Schools. Chestertown Rotary Club arranged for the placement of seven granite benches at the exercise stations around the path.

Officiating at the ceremony were Janice Steffy, KCMS Principal, Dr. Karen Couch, KCPS Superintendent, Chestertown Mayor Chris Cerino and Carrie Lhostky, representing DNR Community Parks & Playgrounds. KCMS students Deondre Blake (8th) and Thomas Goldsborough (7th) spoke of their appreciation and intended use of the improvements. Mayor Cerino stood among a large group of KCMS students in cutting the ribbon.
