Paying forward the legacy of four young men
Since 2007 four young men who have attended School District 196 high schools have died serving in combat. To Eastview teacher Joel Kiekbusch, that's an extraordinary fact.
After thinking about it, he wanted to come up with a way to celebrate the lives of Marine LCPL Daniel Olsen, U.S. Ranger Cpl. Ben Kopp, U.S. Army 1Lt. Christopher Goeke and U.S. Army Cpl. Andrew Wilfahrt. Being an educator, he thought a scholarship would be the best way to honor the sacrifice the young men made.
