Raevyn Rogers Day: August 26, 2021
Olympic track medalist Raevyn Rogers, ’14 visits Kinkaid
Alumna Raevyn Rogers ’14 and Coach Megan Watson, home from the 2021 Olympic Games in Tokyo, Japan, joined Kinkaid students, faculty and staff, and invited guests, including Piney Point Village Mayor Mark Kobelan who presented Raevyn and Coach Watson with proclamations from the citizens of Piney Point Village, for an all school ceremony recognizing Raevyn’s athletic accomplishments and the contributions both she and Coach Watson have made on a world stage.
As our Varsity and Junior-Varsity cheerleaders paved her way and the Kinkaid Band marked her entrance, Raevyn’s Bronze Medal for Team USA shined brightly as she took Segal field joined by Coach Watson and Kinkaid’s six Jr. Olympians - Kevriana Scott (Track), Kennedi Poullard (Track), Catherine Gordon (Track), London Norris (Track), Abby Deverka (Field Hockey), and Merritt Skubisz (Field Hockey). The Raevyn Rogers Invitational, formerly known as the Kinkaid Invitational, was made formal at the ceremony and will take place in March of 2022.
Raevyn joined students from the Upper School, Middle School, and Lower School for assemblies throughout the day, had lunch with student track athletes, and took a walk down memory lane for the four-year three sport varsity athlete who broke records at Kinkaid and has continued to set an example of humility, strength, and endurance at elite levels.
Most importantly, Raevyn showed all of our community through her interactions how Kinkaid’s core values of honesty, respect, responsibility, and kindness make a great athlete an even more remarkable person.
Some "L"s are "W"s. Your journey in life, in sports and in academics is all about progress
The school pride, the Kinkaid pride is very different than other schools...
"...As you get older and as you grow you're always thinking of ways to be better and as a competitor you want to find ways to keep getting better...I just want to be the best and I'm just gonna keep on pushing."
