Chris Burchfield, Hotchkiss English Teacher and Boys Varsity Lacrosse Coach Wins AKDF 10th Year Award

The AKDF Board decided to present a special award to an individual who has exemplified the spirit of the AKDF over the course of the last ten years.

In 2004 Chris organized and named the alumni lacrosse game in memory of Andrew. The AKDF started a lacrosse program at the East Harlem school for 7th and 8th graders and each spring since 2009, Chris Burchfield and the Hotchkiss Boys Varsity Lacrosse Team have organized a special day at Hotchkiss with a clinic, delicious lunch and exciting lacrosse game.

The AKDF is honored to recognize Chris for his enthusiasm and commitment to Andrew’s family and friends over the last ten years and we know will continue for years to come.
