Plymouth Whitemarsh High School (PWHS) senior Kennedy Reardon was named the winner of the Triangle Club’s 2019 Dannehower Award. The prestigious award, which includes a $3,000 scholarship, is presented annually to one public or private high school senior in Montgomery County based on accomplishments in athletics, academics and community service. Reardon is the fourth PWHS student to win the award in its 55-year history. She is the first since 1996.
"First and foremost being recognized with the other students was an honor in itself," Reardon said. "I am so humbled and impressed by all that they have accomplished. Secondly, I am honored to be able to represent PW for this award, and I am grateful to have such a strong support system from our entire community."
Reardon is a two-time All-State field hockey player who is also a standout in the classroom. A field hockey midfielder, she scored 17 goals and added nine assists for PWHS last fall. She helped lead the Colonials to a 17-2 record, their sixth straight Suburban One League American Conference championship and a berth in the District 1 playoffs.
In addition to field hockey, Reardon played lacrosse at PWHS and was a member of the swimming team.
A Distinguished Honor Roll student and Advanced Placement Scholar with Honor, Reardon is a member of the National Honor Society. She also is an officer of the Class of 2019, a member of Doctors Without Borders, the Photography Club and the UNICEF Club.
Reardon plans to continue her academic and athletic careers at Indiana University next year.
