Kyle was a good student, got into most of the colleges he applied to and was active in the school sports as he played soccer all 4 years at Leigh. What made him stand out at Leigh was that he also got along with everyone and was liked by the staff, teachers and students, everyone that knew him liked him. People that knew him at Leigh described him as kind, funny and loyal.
Every year we will present a scholarship to a Leigh graduate that embodies everything Kyle was as a Leigh student.
Growing up Kyle was active in many sports, he played baseball at Union Little League, soccer with West Valley Youth Soccer League & Los Gatos United Soccer League and pop warner football with CV Football League. These sports can be expensive and Kyle's mom was a single mom for a few years, so we understand it can be difficult to pay for all the sports and activities.
We want to provide youth sports scholarships to these local leagues Kyle played in growing up, to help parents that otherwise can not afford to have their child play sports.
We had the honor on August 28th to present a $1000 scholarship to a special organization that we spent many years a part of, West Valley Youth Soccer League. The scholarship will be used to assist families with paying team fees, purchasing uniforms or other equipment.
