The Reverend Frederick H. Sill, O.H.C. Society

Fr. Frederick H. Sill founded Kent on three fundamental principles: Simplicity of Life, Directness of Purpose, and Self Reliance. These principles have successfully guided our School community for more than a century. 

As a tribute to our Founder, the Alumni Council established The Reverend Frederick H. Sill, O.H.C. Society in 2006. The Sill Society recognizes Kent alumni/ae whose personal achievement and distinguished service bring honor and distinction to themselves and Kent School, especially in terms of how such achievement and service significantly impact and beneficially radiate to the larger community, nation, or world. All Alumni/ae of Kent are eligible for consideration, except for those currently serving on the Board of Trustees, the Alumni Council, or as an employee of the School. 

The Sill Society Committee considers nominations annually. For more information about submitting a nomination, please contact Christina Cumberton by phone (860-927-6262) or by email



Athletic Hall of Fame

The Kent School Athletic Hall of Fame honors alumni, coaches, and teams who embody the commitment, teamwork, leadership, and skill that characterizes Kent's athletics program. 

Selection is based primarily on athletic accomplishments while at Kent; however, athletic achievements following graduation will also be considered.

The Athletic Hall of Fame was established in 2001 to honor Alumni and teams are eligible for induction during their Reunion years, beginning with the 10th Reunion. Coaches are eligible upon retirement.

The Julian C.S. "Fuzz" Foster '41 Award

The Julian C. S. “Fuzz” Foster ’41 Class Agent Award was established by the Class of 1941 and the Alumni Council in grateful recognition of longtime Class Secretary Fuzz Foster’s devoted service to his class and to his School. Fuzz served as Class Secretary for 44 years, from his graduation in 1941 until his death in 1985. While at Kent, Fuzz was president of his form for five years, Senior Prefect, captain of the baseball team and president of the Glee Club.

Given annually, the Fuzz Foster Award recognizes class volunteers who have done the most to promote the Annual Fund among their classmates, to stimulate interest in their Class Reunions, and who have served their classes with distinction.
