Mission Statement

The objective of the Fund is to recognize through scholarships demonstrated achievement across the spectrum of academics, the arts, athletics, and community and religious service.

Description

The Kevin M. Eidt Memorial Scholarship Fund was established through the generosity of the many people Kevin touched in his short life. Kevin, an 18-year-old dean's list freshman in the honors program atBostonCollege, passed away from cardiac arrest on January 23, 1997 while playing intramural basketball. Kevin set the example of the passion and sincerity we should bring to each day. He was an individual with vision, commitment, abiding hope, aspirations, and compassion. And when we look back, it was a life, albeit a glimpse of life, by which people can be measured and judged by.

The 2011 scholarships supported by Kevin's Fund are:

  1. $100,000 to a graduating senior at Norwalk HS with demonstrated achievement across the spectrum of academics, arts, athletics, and community and religious service.
