The Kevin Oliver Memorial Leadership Award

Justice LivelyThe Kevin Oliver Memorial Leadership Award was established in 2014 to help recognize one youth each year who demonstrates the virtues of courage, perseverance, and humility, as exemplified in good character & leadership. This annual award, dedicated to the memory of Kevin Oliver, son of Terry & Vince Oliver, is given to the County-nominated Youth of the Year, as a way of enabling their participation in the State Youth of the Year program, and providing the opportunity for continued growth & maturation.

This yearly memorial of Kevin Oliver, recognizing his passion for the youth of Skagit County, and his dedication to personal improvement, was awarded to Justice Lively, to help cover the trip costs to Seattle & Olympia for the State Youth of the Year program. As we reflect on the purpose and impact of this Leadership Award, we are thrilled to see such a great return on the gracious support of the Olivers. Justice’s performance throughout the process of preparing for Youth of the Year, and his hard work throughout the competition– culminating in being named Washington State Youth of the Year– is the best fulfillment of the Award’s purpose. We celebrate with the Olivers, with Justice, and with all our Board, staff, and partners about the the opportunities for #GreatFutures that have been created.
