Lexie L. Kamerman Scholarship

The Knox College community remembers both the dedication and the enthusiasm of Lexie Kamerman '08, who was among 21 people killed in an attack on a restaurant Friday, January 17, 2014, in Kabul, Afghanistan. The Knox community joins the world in mourning the loss of this remarkable young woman.

Her mother, Alison Pohn, recalls leaving Galesburg in September, 2004, feeling confident her daughter was exactly where she needed to be. Based on comments from faculty, coaches, family and friends, her mother was right—Lexie’s choice of Knox was an excellent fit for her goals and ambitions. Her time at Knox strengthened her determination and helped to clarify her place in the global community.

For Lexie, education was a game changer and she intended to help others change the game. It would be hard to imagine a better role model for the young women in Afghanistan than Lexie Kamerman—passionate, confident and eager to help others.

Lexie’s family has chose to honor her memory by encouraging donations to Knox College for scholarship assistance. Since the creation of this scholarship, many donors have come forward and supported it so well that the scholarship is not far away from being endowed at $50,000.  This means the gifts made to Lexie's scholarship to date would be invested as part of the Knox College endowment, which would generate annual funding to support Knox students year after year.

 Lexie's work is not done; education was a passion for her and the need continues to be great. Please join with the Knox community and honor her accomplishments by giving a gift to the Knox College Lexie Kamerman Scholarship because Lexie Kamerman will always be KNOX.
