Noah King developed his love for skating on the local ponds and outdoor rinks throughout the Monadnock Region. At the age of 11 or 12, Noah became a youth hockey player in Keene, and later skated for Keene High School. Like many New Englanders, hockey remained a passion for Noah into adulthood, and he played in leagues in Boston in the years following high school. While Noah had a love for all sports, hockey was his favorite, and his love for skating never ceased. Whether watching a game, playing in high school, or just skating on the pond, he found great joy, and created great memories, from skating.
Tragically, Noah lost his life much too early, and left behind a loving family and many friends. The Noah King Scholarship was created by Noah’s family and friends, in tribute to Noah, to provide financial support, in the form of a $500 scholarship (awarded annually), for a child who is interested in playing youth hockey in the Keene Youth Hockey organization. The goal is to create an opportunity, which might not otherwise exist, for a child to participate in the Keene programs and, like Noah, develop a lifelong love of the game.
Deadline for Submission is November 15th.
