Bob Kenny is still the athletic and activities director at Mason City High School following action by the school board on Monday night. The district superintendent had informed Kenny his position was being eliminated to help address a budget shortfall.
Kenny says he was grateful for the board’s decision as well as the show of public support. “I’m just very fortunate to be in Mason City, and to know that people appreciate what I do,” Kenny says.
Kenny says he was at first upset about the decision when he was told about it on Monday, but then he turned his focus to trying to save the position in the school district. “It’s not about me, it really isn’t, it’s the position that’s being cut. It’s about all the things that go on in a district,” Kenny says.
Kenny says he knows the board’s decision was tough and something they labored over.
