THE SCENE: The Keystone School community gave a San Antonio Tricentennial-style welcome to new Headmaster Billy Handmaker at its annual fundraising gala held at the Hyatt Regency Riverwalk. KSAT-TV personality and Keystone parent, Mike Osterhage, emceed the event that featured music and Folklorico performances by Keystone students, a group that consistently leads the nation in measures of academic success.
THE VIBE: A festive and truly Texan ambience, complete with actors depicting soldiers from the Battle of the Alamo, mariachi music and even barstools made from western-style saddles, were a highlight of the gathering. The Tricentennial-themed event served to celebrate not only the 70-year old academic powerhouse recently recognized as a top private school in San Antonio, but also the 300th anniversary of the city it calls home.
THE CAUSE: Laura Johnson served as the gala chair for the event. Keystone School has provided a haven for San Antonio’s bright and motivated children since 1948. Its diverse community of engaged learners in grades PK3-12 enjoys small classes, master teachers and interdisciplinary instruction on a historic campus in the heart of San Antonio’s Monte Vista neighborhood. Keystone’s scholars prepare for adulthood in a safe and inclusive environment.
