Doane Stuart alumni continue to mourn former building destroyed by huge fire

Alumni of the Doane Stuart Kenwood campus have been expressing their heartbreak over the loss of the building in a huge fire last week.

The fire started last Thursday night – and raged for hours before firefighters could knock it down.

There will be a memorial celebration on May 25. School officials are considering preserving some of the bricks from the building.

Sister Margaret Canty – a former administrator for the Kenwood Convent from 2002 until its closing in 2010 – said it was more than a building.
