Phil and Luke Kindred

Award of Distinction

When ninth grader Luke Kindred visited Glenmore Mansion, he had no idea he was starting on a two-year journey into the past. His curiosity piqued, he began to research the family and the house. Along the way, he was joined by his grandfather Phil Kindred. The duo researched records, found distant family members, and traveled to North Carolina for research and visits. The result is a book, The Story of Glenmore Mansion, an important contribution to our region’s history.
