Remembering Foothill senior Scott Kienhofer

 

The Foothill High School community is mourning the death of senior Scott Kienhofer, who died Sunday after battling cancer.

Foothill principal Sebastian Bull announced the news in a message to the Foothill community Monday, saying Kienhofer was "a beloved member of the Class of 2018" and offering condolences on behalf of the school to the teen's family.

"It is very difficult for all of us to face the loss of one of our students," Bull said, reminding students to reach out to their parents or grief-support counselors on campus if they need help during this time.

Kienhofer had been battling non-Hodgkin's T-cell lymphoblastic lymphoma, according to the "Scottie Strong" Twitter account set up last year to offer support for his cancer fight.

The teen's family is planning a celebration of life but details aren't available yet, Bull said.

We are so very sorry to hear such sad news, our hearts go out to this young man's family and to the students at Foothill. Makes you really think hard how our lives must be treasured and how we must treasure our friends
during the school years. Sad when ones life is cut short and taken away from family and friends. You just never know when that student sitting next to you will be there tomorrow , be kind to each other and respect each other. A word of kindness might be the last thing they might hear.

Our sympathies to those whose hearts are aching with sorrow and sadness.

Well said Tom and Ken. God rest his soul and give courage and strength to his family and friends. I don't know how anyone ever gets over the loss of their child, and I hope I never find out. My prayers are with them. At times like this I try to think that they are in a better place; out of pain and happy to be with the Lord.
