Kelty and Riley Dennehy Memorial Endowment Leadership Award
Kelty and Riley Dennehy were not the best students, but they were good students. They were not the best athletes, but they were good athletes...most importantly they were two children who had warm kind gentle hearts that wanted to give back and make a difference so that they could help others. It is the family's wish that the recipient reflect what Kelty and Riley were like and understand and want to make a difference for those that suffer from mental illness.
