Alma mater remembers victim of OSU fire



The Cincinnati Enquirer

WEST CHESTER TWP. - Kyle Raulin will be honored Tuesday in a memorial wall dedication on the Firebird Soccer Field at his alma mater, Lakota West High School.

Raulin, who was team captain for the Lakota West Firebirds, died April 13 in an arson fire at Ohio State University.

The dedication will include the unveiling of a wall that features the name of the field and Raulin's jersey number, "3,"encircled by a halo. Next to the wall are three flagpoles that will fly the American flag and the flags of the two teams that are playing.

Friends and family, through the Kyle Raulin Special Project Fund, provided funds for the project.

"The West Chester community and Lakota West were always so good to Kyle," said his mother, Janet Raulin. "This is a way we can give back."

The dedication will begin at 7 p.m. The Lakota East-West varsity soccer game will follow.

Contributions can be made to The Kyle Raulin Special Project Fund, c/o Lakota West High School, 8940 Union Center Blvd., West Chester, OH 45069.
