Many Spring Valley High School students are sporting green-and-gold “Viking Strong” T-shirts these days in memory of Corey Stringfellow, the 16-year-old soccer standout killed in a May traffic crash.
The T-shirt effort, organized by two of the school’s soccer coaches, has raised $3,000 for Camp Kemo, an organization that provides a summer camp experience and other programming for children ages 5-18 battling cancer. Spring Valley girl’s coach Steve Lea said they had intended simply to make the T-shirts for boys and girls soccer team members to wear at the annual spring sports banquet, but so many others requested the shirts that Lea decided to make more.
Stringfellow was killed when a car driven by his older brother, Cameron Stringfellow, struck a legally parked car in the early morning hours of May 24. Cameron Stringfellow faces felony driving under the influence in connection with the accident.
The T-shirts benefitting Camp Kemo are $15. Email Lea at email@example.com to purchase.
