Staff Spotlight- Koy Kennedy

By Judy Blase Woodruff

Koy Kennedy is a versatile man who has been a farrier, worked in carpentry, and was a full-time rodeo cowboy who rode bucking horses for a living!  Yes, Camp’s part-time Maintenance Technician was on the rodeo circuit prior to coming to Ondessonk.  In this capacity, he participated in a competition that required him to stay on a bucking horse for eight seconds without touching the horse with his free hand.  Wow!  I would say that the job required determination, stamina, and guts!

Koy began his career at Camp about a year ago, and he simply states that he is a “maintenance man.”  The favorite part of his new job is being able to work outside fixing things – which definitely is an essential job requirement at Camp. He says that he does a little of everything, enjoying a variety of tasks that differ each day.  He especially likes the people he works with.

When asked what his least favorite job at Camp is, he states, “I really don’t like fixing leaking plumbing or working with the sewage system.”  I can’t blame him!

Living right down the road in Ozark, Koy is single, but has a significant other.  We are glad Koy is part of the Ondessonk Family!
