Surrounded by his parents Jena and Jim Kennedy, his brother Ty, and head coach Bill Draves, Boyertown Area Senior High senior Mason Kennedy made a verbal commitment to compete in Division III swimming for Messiah College.
A dedicated athlete, Mason competes in the 200m and 500m freestyle with Boyertown Area Senior High. While on the team, Mason served as captain and qualified for district competition. He also swims for the Hillside Aquatic Club in Pottstown, PA and TOPS Swimming.
Along with swimming, Mason is an excellent student, achieving high honor roll and the provost's academic excellence scholarship. He also participates in mission trips.
Mason will study biology with a concentration in pre-med and Spanish. He chose Messiah because of its Christian atmosphere and the opportunities to study abroad and participate in mission trips.
For the upcoming season, Mason hopes to keep improving his times.
