Seniors Jairus Dean and Chris Reynolds are the first recipients of the Kevin Young Memorial Scholarship.

The scholarship was created in memory of the late Kevin Young who passed away in June 2020. As a 1986 graduate of Newport High School, Young was a loyal Greyhound fan and play-by-play announcer for football.

As stated in his obituary: “Kevin has a larger-than-life personality, and the ability to light up any room with his sense of humor. He loved making people laugh.”

Those who know the 2021 recipients, Dean and Reynolds, can understand why they were chosen. Both young men have the same love of life, exuberant personalities, and determination to be successful.
