Kale Powell was 16 years old when he was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, a blood cancer.

A broken bone in the Homecoming football game was the only way the family found the disease. Kale literally went from the playing field to the children’s cancer ward the same night.

The family is very proud of how Kale handled the difficulties dealt him and how he began his journey with his head held high. Kale insisted that his treatments and bone marrow transplants be scheduled around graduation. He entered the hospital for the last time four days after graduating in May of 2006.

Kale died July 6, 2006 at the age of 18.

The family is very passionate about keeping Kale’s memory alive. With your help, through this scholarship, they will be able to continue to recognize special young men and women who have shown Mental Toughness and given Xtra Effort to accomplish their goals in life. Those individuals, who understand, like Kale did, what it means to “Live for the moment, not tomorrow, or next week. Live for this moment.”
