The foundation educates teens on safe driving, reaches out to those suffering from similar losses, and also provides a monetary scholarship to a Cordova High student each year (over$12,000 awarded so far).

The mission of the Bryant Kite Memorial Foundation is to give strength and courage to those affected by a loss of a loved one; to keep his spirit strong and ever present; to educate teenagers on safety awareness; and to provide scholarship support to students who best exemplify the outstanding qualities exhibited by Bryant during his time on Earth.
The Bryant Kite Memorial Foundation was created by his close friends and family. The inspiration for this endeavor evolved during numerous discussions by so many that loved Bryant. Discussions and reflection on the intent of this memorial foundation settled on a simple yet substantial goal: to honor the memory of a fallen friend by educating and lifting other individuals to the heights of his or her personal best. The promise of this memorial foundation is one of encouragement, education and financial support. The scholarship recipient would be defined as an individual striving for harmony, academic distinction and athletic excellence.
