Greetings All,

My name is Rick Kenner. I spent 17 years in the US Army as an Airborne Light Infantryman including 3 years on the trail as a Drill Instructor. For the past 11 years I have been an art instructor, athletic coach, and athletic director

I am proud to serve Apprentice Academy High School of North Carolina as the athletic director and visual arts instructor, along with the many other functions I perform, officially and unofficially. I hope my experience and commitment will contribute to the success in the AAHSNC mission and provide the students and families of Monroe and the surrounding area a positive and beneficial high school experience.
