Kelly Kennedy

Director of Development and Board Member

Mrs. Kennedy’s background includes not only her work as a pediatric nurse for 10 years at the Children’s Hospital in Chicago, but also extensive philanthropy experience. She has served for 20 years in various philanthropic efforts as a volunteer, serving on boards and chairing events. She married her husband Michael in 1994 and they have four children, all Valor alumni: Jack ’22, Kaitlyn ’18, Shaun ’16, and P.J. (Patrick) ’14. Mrs. Kennedy is passionate for Valor’s mission, as she has seen her children benefit immensely from attending Valor.

Kelly is an active member of Valor’s Board of Education. While preparing to become an “empty nester,” Kelly heard God’s call to serve Valor in a new capacity as Director of Development. She believes life is more meaningful when you are serving and took on the role to serve.
