Kealing Middle School turns 30 in style

Thursday, April 20, 2017 by Nina Hernandez

East Austin’s Kealing Middle School has a long history, and this weekend will bring together its alumni for an event to celebrate that history. The school opened in 1930, closed four decades later due to desegregation and, finally, reopened in the mid-1980s with the addition of a magnet program. It’s a legacy that affects the school to this day. This celebration marks the 30th anniversary since the school school reopened. Former students and their families – the Hornet community – are invited a lunch with games, tours and music on campus. The reopening starts at 10 a.m. at Kealing Middle School.
