Scholarship fund honors flood victim

By Earnest Winston

        A memorial walk/run will be Sunday at the Loveland Bike Trail to raise money for a memorial scholarship fund named in honor of Monica Kuchmar. The Blue Ash 16-year-old was swept to her death into Sycamore Creek during the July 18 flooding.

        Volunteers from Hills Communities and Sycamore High School will register walkers and riders between 5:30 and 7:30 p.m. today at Sycamore Junior High during the Sycamore-Colerain football game at Sycamore Stadium.

        The 9 a.m. walk/run was organized by Monica's family, friends, faculty at Sycamore High School, where she was a senior-to-be, and her father's employer, Hills Communities. All proceeds will benefit the scholarship fund, which will help high-school seniors pursue higher education.

        Registration for adults is $25, and $15 for children 12 and under.

        Donors can send a check to the Monica Kuchmar Memorial Scholarship Fund, c/o Hills Communities, 7420 Montgomery Road, Silverton 45236.
