Kyle William Kiihnl Memorial Scholarship
 

OVERVIEW

Kyle Kiihnl was a 17-year-old junior at Houston High School in Germantown, TN when he lost his life to a driver that fell asleep at the wheel. Since that time his family has made it their mission to educate drivers on the dangers of driving sleep impaired. His family and friends do not want his untimely death to be his legacy. Rather, his fun sense of humor, love for his family, enjoyment of being with his friends, and his uncanny ability to bring a smile to every face in the room is his legacy. While he was naturally gifted academically, he also enjoyed restoring his 1974 Firebird, playing the guitar, and anything having to do with computers. In 2018 we are offering a $1000 College Scholarship. The scholarship recipient will be selected by the Kyle Kiihnl Scholarship Committee.
