The four years in high school are formative years in a lot of young people’s lives, and ones that are often remembered forever. For two Woodward Academy alumni, they were so powerful that they helped shape who they are today. Kevante Jackson and Tony Stocker attended WA during the 2010-2011 school year and left an impact on the school that continues today. They were both members of Woodward Academy’s first football team, and were also on the powerlifting team that was featured in the documentary, Knight of Iron.
They are now on their own in Kansas City, MO and Flint, MI respectively, working in the auto industry, and both are engaged to be married. Tony’s fiancé is originally from Iowa and he wanted to show her his path through high school that included a stop at Woodward Academy’s campus. He called Kevante up, and together they made the trip. Tony admitted to staff that he never thought he would ever return to campus, and was regretting his decision as he approached campus. But once he saw and talked with some staff he knew, he said it “felt like home.” During their time on campus, they presented their story to a lot of Knights during Dorm Report meeting and both are extremely proud to be Knights.
