Members of Kenny Angels, past and present, were on hand as the Athletic Department celebrated the 40-year anniversary of the club and the countless hours of service that they provide to BK Athletics each year.
With Angels assembled at half-court on a Friday night that featured four back-to-back Crusader basketball games, announcer Tim Yocum read, “In 1978, Athletic Director, Joe Parete helped establish the Angels to staff on-campus concessions at BK. Since then, more than 750 young women, including 55 this year alone, have stepped up to serve the hungry and thirsty spectators attending BK Athletic events.”
Special recognition was also given to Ms. Traci Nelms, an unofficial Kenny Angel, who has volunteered in the BK concessions for more than 30 years. Traci is the very definition of an Angel. We thank Traci for her years of tireless service to BK and the Athletic Department.
As a token of appreciation, a beautiful Christmas ornament featuring the Kenny Angels logo was presented to each of the Angels in attendance.
