SMA HONCHO KENNEDY GETS KEYS Although there is nothing in the rules to prevent it, it is very rare for a local resident to receive the keys to the City of Sarasota. Internationally known aerialist Nick Wallenda has a set, and on Monday, July 22, Dan Kennedy received one, too. Mayor Willie Shaw made the presentation to a beaming Kennedy, proclaiming Dan Kennedy Day by resolution of the City Commission. Kennedy was an educator and administrator for more than three decades in town. He served as principal of Sarasota High School before leaving to start Sarasota Military Academy (SMA) as a charter school demanding order, discipline and structured learning with strong parental involvement. He recently retired from the SMA and its board of directors. % Dan Kennedy (right) accepts the keys to the city from Mayor Willie Shaw in recognition of Kennedy's decades of leadership in education.
