Jim Landskroener

On Friday, June 26th, Kent School hosted the JaimOpen Golf Tournament at the Chester River Yacht & Country Club. This was the first tournament to be held at the Country Club following the shutdown due to the COVID-19 Global Health Crisis. The School worked closely with CRYCC Staff to ensure that the tournament will strictly adhere to all safety guidelines and regulations set by the State.

Third Place in the tournament was awarded to Rock Crum, Geoff Delamater, Tyler Majchrzak, and Bill Mason. First and Second Place were determined by tie breaker. Second Place was awarded to Joe Elliott, Erin Gillespie, Jim Gillespie, and Tricia Mooney. First Place was awarded to Peter Heller, Jr., Rob Thompson, Justin Varga, and Matt Williams ‘97.

Nancy Mugele, Head of Kent School said, “We were thrilled to celebrate Kent School, and to have the opportunity to honor Jim “Jaimo” Landskroener, who retired this year after 37 years of teaching at Kent School. On June 3, I announced that Kent School will name the new Middle School Commons in honor of Jim. The Landskroener Commons will serve as a common area for all Middle School students, providing locker space for students as well as gathering spaces for study or visiting with friends.”

Jen Matthews ‘01, Director of Development and Alumni Relations said, “Our sponsors, golfers, and volunteers all came together to support Kent School and helped us raise over $13,000 in support of student learning. We are especially grateful for the opportunity to celebrate our community. Support of the Golf Tournament ensures that Kent School continues to provide a rigorous academic program in a nurturing and supportive learning environment. Kent School students graduate with a strong foundation, and we are grateful to our community for helping us to achieve this goal.”
