On a beautiful day in late September, the Amherst A Better Chance (ABC) community celebrated the life and legacy of Keith Hill, Amherst Regional High School (ARHS) and ABC alumnus, Class of 1981. Members of Keith’s family (his wife Linda, daughter McKenzie, and sister Tyjuana) were in attendance from Virginia and Indiana for the dedication of this bench, placed on the lawn of the ABC House. (Funding for the bench came from the newly established Keith Hill Fund.)
For Keith, as for so many Amherst ABC alumni, attending ARHS while living with their ABC family at the House on North Prospect Street was a transformative experience. We acknowledge and appreciate Keith Hill’s family and friends’ ongoing commitment to the Amherst ABC program. They recognize that the academic and personal support that Amherst A Better Chance provided to Keith and so many others must continue in the years to come.
