Drake Scholarship award
In 2007, a group of individuals came together with the vision of recognizing KHS football athletes with a scholarship named after Rae Drake who was a teacher and football coach at Kingsford High School. He went on to coach football at Northern Michigan University. Each year since then, they have awarded one $500 renewable scholarship to a selected recipient. The 2014 Rae Drake Kingsford Football Alumni Scholarship, in the amount of $2,000, is awarded to Alex Patterson. Presenting the award is Lyle Smithson, KHS principal.
