Kenney pitched briefly for the Braves in 1938.

LITTLETON—Arthur J. Kenney, principal of Littleton High School from 1950 through 1963, was honored April 1 on what was the 60th anniversary of the greatest challenge of his tenure, the destruction by fire of the high school in 1954.

His response to that crisis, according to Al Smith, assistant superintendent and CTC director, who opened the proceedings, "was to get things rolling within two weeks and to see the school rebuilt in two years."

Kenney died on March 12 in Littleton at age 97.
