April Buchanon
April Buchanon

April Buchanon is the main love interest of Kenny Powers. She was his high school sweetheart, and in the beginning of Season 1, when Kenny returns to North Carolina, he is forced to work as a physical education teacher in the same school where April is working as an art teacher.


In Season 1, April is engaged to the principal, Terrence Cutler. At the end of that season, she leaves him for Kenny Powers, under the impression that Kenny has made it to the major leagues again. However, when Kenny's deal doesn't go trough, he leaves April at a gas station on his way to Mexico, too embarrassed to tell her the truth.

In Season 3, April has given birth to Kenny's first child (Toby) who is now one year old, but they are not together. She gives him one more chance, when he takes her out on a date. However, she leaves inexplicably, leaving Kenny with the baby. April is patient and very accepting (and sometimes encouraging) of Kenny's rude, obnoxious, and self-absorbed personality; however, it is clear throughout the series that she loves Kenny, and he loves her as well.
