The Kirkwood Community College Athletics department in conjuncture with the Kirkwood Foundation, has established a fund to honor former Kirkwood Head Baseball Coach John Lewis. Our goal is to raise $50,000 which will:
- Establish an endowed scholarship in Coach Lewis' name.
- Assist in funding needed improvements to the baseball field.
- Name the field "Lewis Field".
