Upon graduation from Calumet High School in 1954, Ken enlisted in the U.S. Army with his childhood friend, Jon Kytta. Ken served as a radio operator in Germany and was honorably discharged in 1962.
Ken received his undergraduate degree in secondary education from NMU, and his Master’s and Education Specialist degrees from Wayne State University.
