Kenneth Purcell '57
Ken Purcell '57, first full term Chaminade Alumni President and prime organizer of the association, was presented its highest honor, the "Distinguished Alumnus Award" at the school's recent Homecoming Reunion.
Current President Chuck Behm made the presentation, the first of its kind bestowed on a Chaminade alumnus. Behn cited Purcell's selfless and consistent efforts on behalf of the association, his leadership and involvement at every level of endeavor.
