Burbank High School is one vote away from naming its main athletic field after former school icons Dave Kemp and Frank Kallem.
The Burbank Unified school board is expected to consider the action at its next board meeting on Dec. 20, after the district’s nine-member facilities-naming committee recommended the move to the board at the last board meeting on Nov. 15.
“After careful consideration, the committee was unanimous in wanting to move forward to a public hearing to name the field Kemp-Kallem Field,” said John Paramo, district director of second education.
The district’s next scheduled meeting on Dec. 6 was cancelled, making Dec. 20 the likely day for a vote.
We’re being charitable too when we refer to them as “jokes.” They weren’t even funny back then. Fortunately, the students knew enough to groan.
Btw … wasn’t this originally going to be for Kemp alone? When did Kallem get added?
Keep it for him, we say. Better yet, name it for Pete Lipera. He actually won championships. The good guys always get forgotten in this town though, don’t they?
Or, more like it, ignored.
