We honor Joel's memory by celebrating his hard work-ethic, kindness & commitment to success. 


Joel Kudym

Joel attended Omaha Central High School from 1993 to 1996. Formal education was difficult for Joel, but he applied himself and graduated from Central in 1996. His life tragically ended June 18, 1997. The Kudym family started a scholarship fund in 2002 with the first Annual Joel Kudym Memorial Golf Outing. Each year, family and friends celebrate Joel’s life and raise money to help deserving students pursue their dreams of higher education. We invite you to apply for this scholarship and wish you the best in your future goals.
