Kennedys honored for contributions to BC sports

CHESTNUT HILL — Jack Kennedy has been one of Boston College’s most loyal and generous supporters for over 50 years.

His wife, Jacqui, has become an ardent Eagle supporter, too. They were recently honored for their generosity during the school’s Flynn Fund Appreciation Week.

Jack, a Lawrence native and former teacher-coach at West Middle School in Andover, graduated from BC in 1961. Jacqui, an Andover High grad who now teaches near their home in Hampton, N.H., earned a graduate degree from BC.

The Boston College web site wrote, “They are among the most loyal and passionate fans. In fact, Jack and Jacqui make the long drive to the Heights for every home football, hockey, men’s and women’s basketball game.”

The Kennedy family certainly hasn’t forgotten its roots. Jack’s brother, Frank Kennedy, has been honored by his alma mater, Brown University, for his longtime support of its athlete programs. In 2006 he won the athletic department’s prestigious Joslin Award.
