The Alexis Pilkington Memorial Scholarship has been developed in memory of Lexi, a 2010 graduate of West Islip High School in New York. Lexi was a 17 year old, outgoing, All-County athlete who was a best friend to many and liked by all. She tragically took her own life on March 21st, 2010. In honor of Lexi's life, and in the hope that her death will not have been in vain, multiple scholarships will be awarded to high school seniors. Our wish is that these scholarships, awarded in Lexi's name, will continue to raise awareness toward suicide prevention.
If we can save one life, it's worth the effort.
