To the Cadets Hall of Fame Committee,
I would like to nominate Kenny Conklin to the Cadets Hall of Fame.
Kenny was a quartermaster for the corps back in the 80’s. During that time his daughter Kathy and his son Billy marched with the Cadets. He did so much for all the kids during his this time. He worked tirelessly on their behalf.
But more importantly…for me…he was my first drum instructor. Without his instruction and guidance I would have never been able to join the Garfield Cadets. Kenny was a life changer.

I'm writing to nominate my father Ken Conklin for the Hall of Fame. He has always loved "Garfield". They've always been a part of our lives. My brother and I marched in the Plebes and then moved up to the "Big Corps". My sister also marched in the plebes. My parents even bought a maroon & white suburban when we were in the Plebes.
