Thank you Mike Kanze

Many, many thanks to Mike Kanze, ‘65

Mike’s life is about service – service to his country, service to his community, service to his family, service to his PAHS alumni. Mike has kept the PAHS alums and former faculty informed of PAHS happenings for a quarter of a century. Clearly, if it were not for Mike’s dedication to keeping us together, we would not be where we are today – still celebrating our heritage after the school has been closed for 50 years.

Mike sent out his last email communication in December. Going forward, your PAHS Reunion Committee (including Mike) will use the PAHS web site as the exclusive means of notifying everyone about alum activities, statuses, reunions, and so forth.

Many, many thanks for your time, dedication, enthusiasm and friendship, Mike. Enjoy your retirement, Pirate! See you in Portland in September!

As Mike reminded us in his letter, please log on to the site ( and be sure that your profile and contact information are up to date. And if you haven’t joined the site, now is the time to do so. We don’t want anyone to miss out on things like the 2018 Portland Reunion and the 2020 Reunion en France.
