Kyle Gaye was a student at Amador High School whose life was full of challenges, curiosity, achievement and deep friendships. He was a young man that accomplished much and touched many in a very short time. His life tragically concluded, too early, in the summer of 2006.

Cathy Stevens, Kyle’s mother; with Kenneth and Judy Gibson, Kyle’s grandparents wanted to honor Kyle’s memory by establishing a Scholarship Fund through Amador Community Foundation.

Kyle Gaye was an Eagle Scout; one of his proudest accomplishments. Achieving the rank of Eagle Scout in the Boy Scouts of America is not a quick and easy task, but is full of requirements, deadlines and commitments, much like the journey a student takes from the first day of the ninth grade until graduation. The Eagle Scout award is the highest honor a young man can receive in Boy Scouting. Only 4% of Scouts achieve this rank. To reach this goal Kyle demonstrated goal achievement, leadership skills, and commitment to community service.

Kyle’s family chooses to reward a senior who achieves his Eagle Scout rank and has exemplified the values of this accomplishment through his scholarship, dedication and hard work in memory of Kyle Gaye.
