2022 RAIDER LEGEND
KENNETH "KEN" FLAIR
Biography by Larry Holder '98, columnist for The Athletic
It was love at first sight.
For Ken Flair, the beginning of his journey of over four decades at Archbishop Rummel gave him a clear picture of having a sense of belonging.
“I was home at Rummel High School and with the Brothers,” Flair said.
This heartfelt memory resonates almost 60 years later as Mr. Kenneth “Ken” Flair remembers being asked by Brother Ephram to join the faculty in Summer of 1966, in the young, formation stage of what would become a Metairie and Jefferson Parish institution and excellent fixture in education.
A respected educator and administrator for 42 years, Mr. Flair proudly accepted the call to mold the lives of thousands of Raiders and help shape them into Christian gentlemen. Admired by his peers, Mr. Flair motivated and inspired countless Raiders to work to the best of their abilities and share their unique talents. In the process, Flair impacted an enormous number of lives.
“When I do a job, I do it as a Christian Brother,” Flair said. “I don’t do it for any reward or congratulations, I do it completely and fully… I am honored to be associated with the men and women on that wall… they are the legends in my mind.”
During his tenure at Rummel, Mr. Flair’s experience began in the classroom as a geometry teacher for the first few years. As his credibility grew, his leadership skills were called upon by the school administration initially as the department head for the Math department, and then to help groom the students as disciplinarian, vice-principal and dean of students. In addition, he implemented new standards annually to ensure the continued success of the students and the school, as a whole.
As the recipient of the Raider Legend award for 2022, Flair embodies all of the qualities associated with the prestigious honor, representing Raider Pride in fabulous fashion.
