Kenneth Meade

Ken Meade, Elder Class of 1980, was the oldest of five Meade boys to attend to Elder.  Ken was a confident student and very involved in activities such as the chess club, Risk club, poster club and served on the pep rally committee.  He gave much credit to his teachers, administrators and the other students for shaping his outlook on life at a critical time.  Elder taught Ken about faith, friendship, responsibility and family and the importance of each.  He graduated from UC with a B.S. in Nuclear Engineering and went on to work for the Tennessee Valley Authority in Chattanooga, TN.  He got married and had two daughters and enjoyed his family, golfing, boating and fishing.  Ken died tragically in a 1996 boating accident at the age of 34 and through the memorials from his funeral, Ken’s family established a scholarship in his name.
