Did you know? Mr. Don Wiens began teaching at KHS in 1964. He has witnessed the transition from Kensington High School to Unified 238 West Smith County High (1966-1967), to Unified 110 Thunder Ridge (2008-2009). He is still the Athletics Director, takes care of all the grounds maintenance at the football field and the baseball field. He gets all the equipment and uniforms out at the beginning of each season, puts it all away when the season is over. He is ever faithful to report for snow removal and various other tasks. Recently he's also playing the roll of part-time custodian (because we are currently without one), and continues teaching Computers and SS/KS History at the Middle School. Thank you Mr. Wiens for your numerous years of service and dedication to our schools and youth.
