Levi Hampton graduated from Soroco High School in Oak Creek, in 1990 and attended the Colorado School of Mines. In May 2000 he was diagnosed with a rare recurring brain tumor and was given only a short time to live. He fought bravely for 14 years to live an independent and fulfilling life. Levi passed away August 17, 2014.
In order to honor his memory and pass on his love of learning, his family set up the Levi Hampton Memorial Scholarship to be given each year to a graduating senior at Soroco High School. Through this scholarship, Levi’s passion for life and learning will continue to thrive throughout the South Routt community.
