Welcome

The Roye L. Kidd Memorial Scholarship

The Roye L. Kidd Memorial Scholarship is established by a committee of colleagues, principals, and former students of this master teacher and coach. Coach Kidd’s belief was that education and persistence towards one’s goals was the key to a better life. Hundreds of his football players, some eventually NFL players, graduated from college with scholarships secured by Coach Kidd. Countless times he used his own funds to ensure that many students’ needs were met. We, the committee, endeavor to preserve that belief through the Roye L. Kidd Memorial Scholarship.

Roye L. Kidd

Coach Roye L. Kidd, son of a sharecropper, born in a log cabin without plumbing or electricity, went on to become a teacher at John F. Kennedy, an urban high school in Cleveland, Ohio. He taught at JFK for 39 years and coached for 36 years. This humble Air Force veteran, role model and mentor, was an inspiration to all students. One of his players was quoted as saying, “He always stressed being responsible and accountable for our actions.”
Welcome
