The Kesi Gilford Reynaud Memorial Foundation
The Kesi Gilford Reynaud Memorial Foundation was established by her parents, Henry and Ollie Gilford, as a memorial tribute to the life of their daughter, Kesi, a very talented leader who understood the importance of setting high goals for herself and working hard to achieve them. One of the Memorial Foundation’s missions is to inspire high school seniors to pursue higher education by providing scholarship support. Since 2003, the Foundation has granted at least three scholarships per year to students maintaining a 2.5 grade point average with demonstrated financial need.
