This award is given in memory of Krysta Hankee, daughter of Bill and Chris Hankee and sister of Kyle Hankee. Krysta lived in the Lehigh Valley most of her life and took classes at LCCC. She graduated from New York University in 2007. A few months after beginning her short career at Triangle Equities in Whitestone, N.Y., she collapsed in a gym and passed away a few days later. The Hankee family is proud of these scholars for exemplifying many of the same community-focused traits found in Krysta.
