    May 9, 2013 by steve

    Todd and Theresa Brogna of Hood River, along with their family, established a memorial scholarship for their son, Kyle Brogna. The memorial scholarship will be awarded each year to a second year Renewable Energy Technology Program student in the amount of $1,000.

    Kyle passed away unexpectedly on Wednesday, July 11, in Hood River due to complications from Type 1 Diabetes. He was born January 3, 1991 in Lancaster, California, where he lived with his father Todd Brogna, mother Theresa Maher Brogna and sister Kaitlyn Brogna until 2007, when they moved to Hood River. Kyle loved living in Hood River and graduated from Hood River Valley High School in 2009. He attended Portland Community College and planned to follow his father into the wind energy industry. He loved many outdoor activities including riding motorcycles, snowboarding and wake-boarding and other water sports. Kyle played hockey for 12 years and was a great goalie. He loved animals, especially his dogs Sophie and Gizzy. Kyle had suffered from Type 1 Diabetes since age 8, but never let it slow him down or define him. He is survived by his parents and sister, paternal grandmother and several aunts, uncles and cousins. He is preceded in death by his maternal grandparents, Francis and Beryl Maher, and his uncle, James Maher.

    Columbia Gorge Community College Foundation is grateful for the Brogna family’s support of higher education in the Mid-Columbia region through a memorial scholarship for their son, Kyle. The memorial scholarship will help a student in the Columbia Gorge achieve their dreams and reach their career aspirations in the area of renewable energy.
