That is a fact that must never be forgotten. Kenny is a HERO and is so very missed by his family and friends. Kenny is an American Hero who felt a sense of duty after 9/11 to protect his family, friends and his country by joining the U.S. Army. At the age of 22, Kenny gave his life for those he loved when he was killed in Iraq on May 22, 2005. Kenny was born and raised in Peoria, Arizona. He was an avid golfer who attended Centennial High School and Glendale Community College where he played on the golf teams.Kenny was studying to become a High School History teacher and has left us with the knowledge that "One person can make a difference". We want to honor his legacy with the deepest part of our hearts by hosting yearly charity golf events to raise funds for the Kenny Schall Memorial Scholarship Fund. This is our way of honoring him and helping the students that he so wanted to teach.These golf events promise to be one of the highlights of the year for all who attend. Participants will enjoy a relaxing round of golf, dinner, raffle prizes and the chance to bid on amazing items. There will also be an opportunity to meet current and previous scholarship recipients.
