The Kyle-Lenn-Joey Scholarship Fund
This fund was set up as a memorial honoring former students Kyle Schumacher, Lenn Kawamura, and Joey Yoshikawa. It helps fund a limited financial aid program to assist students who lack the resources to meet the full cost of an education at KCS. Each spring, a day is set aside for a walk-a-thon to raise monies for the fund. Students collect donations from friends and relatives to support the endeavor. Various awards are given to the students who reach the designated quotas.
The Helen N. McKenzie Scholarship Fund
This scholarship fund was established in 2000 in honor of KCS' founding principal. It is a merit scholarship, given to the 6th - 8th grader who is deemed to best reflect the school's emphasis on academic effort, caring attitude, and service to school and community.
Contributions by alumni and other to help establish a fund for this scholarship are appreciated.
