Summer Kempton Memorial Sports Fund

Summer Kempton graduated from Folsom High School in 2003. Summer was an excellent student, earning a number of academic honors. She participated in a variety of youth sports, including soccer, girls’ softball, and basketball.

Summer excelled at all sports, but her first love was soccer. She was a member of the Girls’ Varsity Soccer team at Folsom High in 2001 and 2002 and played on the first select team in the city’s history to win a state championship.

Summer passed away in 2007. Because of her passion for soccer, her family and friends established a scholarship program, in Summer’s honor, to provide financial support for kids to ensure no Folsom child, who wants to play soccer, is denied that opportunity due to lack of family resources. The goal of this scholarship is to help purchase uniforms, cleats, and shin guards for Folsom’s youth in need.

The Summer Kempton scholarship is managed through the Folsom Soccer Club. Visit the club for application details.
