Family, friends, Northampton Area School District faculty, administrators, and students will join the Konkrete Kids Educational Foundation on Sunday, September 25, 2022 when each of these seven alumni will be honored and presented with their official Distinguished Alumni Award plaque.

The plaque for each honoree, recognizing his/her personal and professional post-high school graduation achievements and featuring a current photo, as well as a graduation photo, will be permanently mounted in June on the Distinguished Alumni Wall of Honor located in Northampton High School’s main lobby. The Distinguished inductees honored on the Wall serve as an inspiration to all students and as a reminder to the entire community of Northampton Area School District’s proud education tradition and commitment to serve others.

The Konkrete Kids Educational Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, tax-exempt community organization.  As a Foundation fundraiser, all proceeds from the Celebration Dinner and Recognition Program will be used to “promote, enhance, and supplement educational and co-curricular programs by providing extended learning opportunities and experiences for the benefit of students within the Northampton Area School District.”
