Since 1989, the Scecina Memorial High School Alumni Golf Classic has funded a substantial scholarship awarded to a Scecina student for their senior year. The recipients are among the highest achieving in academics and leadership, and reflect the character and values that Mr. Leffler encouraged as a teacher, coach, and friend. The scholarship is named in honor of Kenneth R. Leffler (1943-1988), who touched the lives of many in the community as a teacher, administrator, coach, and student mentor during his career at Scecina Memorial High School from 1969-1988.
“It is undeniably clear that the teachers, coaches, and staff of Scecina Memorial view their jobs as a calling, rather than a duty. It is because of these hard-working and caring people of the Scecina Community that I am on a prosperous path that will lead to life-long happiness and success.” - Elissa Murphy ‘19
