Are there any changes we should make?

Note that the Kelvin History website is a newly innovated addition to our school's many historical memorabilias. With the hundreds of biographies already added by a group of dedicated students we are not always opportuned to receive information that would better benefit our alumni biographies. If by chance you feel as though you have some missing details on any particular alumni then we will graciously accept to hear about them from you personally!

Jim Pappas

Jim Pappas graduated from Kelvin High School in 1960. He later became the manager of Kelekis restaurant, a family restaurant which closed in January of 2013, after 81 years of service. The business was well known for its fine food and service. It eventually became a tourist spot in which many celebrities visited, such as Prime Minister Jean Chrétien. Pappas is active in his local community and in 2013 received Winnipeg's North End B.I.Z. award for his involvement with promoting local businesses. During the Kelvin 100th celebration in May 2012, Pappas served as co-chair of the anniversary committee, organizing the cherished reunion.
