Kevin Killmer Memorial "Spirit Award" Scholarship
This scholarship is given in memory of Kevin Killmer, a Class of 1994 graduate who, despite being diagnosed with cancer, displayed a valiant and fearless spirit throughout his illness. Kevin became a friend and role model to those he met. Being selected by his classmates for “Best Personality” is a testament that Kevin’s character and congeniality were mutually recognized and admired by his peers.
Kevin participated in a variety of sports and co-curricular activities including football, swimming, and Ski Club. He earned several honors including the Sons of the American Revolution Good Citizen Award and Student of the Month and, as a senior, was chosen by his peers as both the Homecoming King and Prom King.
Days before his death on May 30, 1994, Kevin was presented with his LTHS diploma, a symbol of his scholastic accomplishments as well as his remarkable character and fortitude for which he is remembered.
The Kevin Killmer Memorial “Spirit Award” Scholarship is presented to an LTHS senior who has participated in sports and school events and who has demonstrated proper leadership and citizenship qualities both at school and in the community.
