LEWISBURG- A baseball field will be built at the new Lewisburg High School in memory of an alumnus who passed away in 2013. The Green Dragon Foundation will use the funds from the Brandon S. Kramm Memorial Endowment to build the field.
Ann Glock, executive director of the foundation says, “A few years ago the Kramm family and some of their friends started an endowment, and the purpose was to help the district with future athletic programs and facilities. The family came to me and said what if we take on this project of building a baseball field because Brandon was an excellent baseball player here and it would be an amazing way for the family to memorialize him.”
Brandon Kramm was a 2001 graduate of Lewisburg Area High School, and was a standout athlete in baseball earning ‘All District’ honors as a catcher. Kramm was diagnosed with a rare liver disease in 2002 and died in 2013.
The endowment is funded through the annual Brandon Kramm Memorial Golf Tournament and Auction which takes place in June. Glock says they will continue to raise funds to pay for the field, “We are going to raise money, we have about half of it all ready raised and we want to keep the momentum going while we are finishing off raising the money we want to get the project started and begin some of the leg work to get the field built.”
