J. Dennis Kirst Memorial sign dedication at B-B CSD

As a way to honor former school Superintendent J. Dennis Kirst who died unexpectedly in August 2002, a memorial fund was established in his name by the Byron-Bergen Central School District. Dennis Kirst brought a great deal of energetic enthusiasm to the Byron-Bergen School District, always encouraging everyone to "Bee Your Best" and do what is best for kids, according to district officials.

On Saturday, September 30 at noon, the Byron-Bergen Central School District will dedicate the school's new outdoor electronic signboard in memory of J. Dennis Kirst, Superintendent Emeritus (1995-2001). This project was realized through three years of fundraising efforts by the J. Dennis Kirst Memorial Committee and the support from staff, students, community members, many local businesses, and various school organizations. The sign is located at the northeast corner of West Bergen and Townline Roads.
