Kenny loved hunting anything that moved, fishing, gold panning, welding, working on vehicle’s, spending time with family and friends, loved the outdoors to its fullest and enjoyed spending time at the family ranch. Kenny was most known for being a kind, caring, compassionate kid who would lend a hand to anyone, anytime. He enjoyed giving back to his community, volunteering with the Routt County Fair, Hayden Museum, West Routt Fire District, Yampa River State Park, Steamboat Christian Center, and Hayden Congregational Church. Kenny was known for being a mischievous prankster with a sly grin who loved to share jokes and mastered the art of amusing yet straight faced one-liners. No one, from small children to respected adults, were safe from Kenny’s pranks. Kenny was well liked and respected and touched the hearts and lives of everyone he knew in one way or the other and had the ability to carry on a well thought out conversation covering a wide variety of topics with people of any age group. He was a superhero kid to his family.
About the Kenny Corriveau Trade Scholarship
The Kenny Corriveau Trade Scholarship was awarded for the first time in 2017, in memory of Kenny Corriveau, a 2016 Hayden High School graduate.
Corriveau was interested in several trades, including woodworking and auto work, and had earned 15 welding certifications.
He was very interested in the trades. We need to encourage people who also want to do this. – Laura Schrettner, Kenny’s mother
The Yampa Valley Community Foundation raises funds and accepts donations for this scholarship, which will be awarded to a student or students from Routt, Rio Blanco or Moffat counties age 17 to 25 and planning to attend a trade school, college or university to pursue an education in the trades.
