Alumni Awards

In 2023, we introduced our first two alumni awards: The Kalamazoo Christian High School Impact Award and Kalamazoo Christian High School Legacy Award.

On May 25th, at the Kalamazoo Christian High School Graduation ceremony, Marc Verkaik, Head of School, awarded our first four alumni award winners! Kalamazoo Christian Schools implemented these two awards for the first time this year, and we will make it a tradition to award winners each year.

Congratulations to our four 2023 award recipients!

Alumni Legacy Award: John Schaap, Class of 1946 & Richard Van Donselaar, Class of 1967
Alumni Impact Award: Jennifer Benefiel DeKryger, Class of 1989 & Joel ‘Joey’ DeKoekkoek, Class of 1987
