When she’s not participating in Kenmore community activities like Halloween costume judging, you can find Gini Rasnick ruling her roost of Cardinals at Kenmore High School.
As the new KHS principal, Mrs. Rasnick is proud to return to the school that shaped her future so many years ago.
“I was excited to come back as principal because not many assistant principals are promoted and return to their alma mater,” said Rasnick, who has served as an assistant principal at North High School and Garfield High School.
“It’s an honor and a privilege to be here at KHS,” added Rasnick. “I have always known that the school and students were exceptional.”
She has already caught up on most of Kenmore’s traditions.
“There is so much tradition evident here at Kenmore High School,” said KHS Assistant Principal Jeannie Yost. “Mrs. Rasnick is thrilled to see that many of the traditions have continued.”
“I know Mrs. Rasnick will work hard to ensure that Kenmore’s tradition of excellence will continue,” added Yost.
Yost said Rasnick works well with the staff and uses all of her resources to solve problems with the help of the team that surrounds her.
“The staff and I all want the same for our students, which is for them to leave KHS with the academic skills necessary for their success,” added Rasnick.
Freshman Darian Revis said, “It’s good for Kenmore to have Mrs. Rasnick as a Kenmore graduate because she understands what goes on here.”
“Her graduating from Kenmore shows the students they can achieve exactly what they want, and they can be successful.”
Senior Alex Steinmetz agrees.
“We are going to have a good graduating class because we’re smart and perfect with a lot of spirit,” added Steinmetz. “Mrs. Rasnick is doing her best and trying hard to make KHS a number one school!”
