Kyle was recognized as a student of High Honor. He also was named to membership Kappa Mu Epsilon, a national honor society for students of mathematics, and in Sigma Beta Delta, a national honor society for students of business. Kyle is a senior pursuing a mathematics major.

The H.N. & Frances Berger Foundation Endowed Scholarship Fund was established at (then) Cumberland College in 1983 by Mr. and Mrs. H. N. Berger to recognize exceptionally bright young people who have demonstrated high academic ability.

The NSF Stem Scholarship provides $6000 per year through a grant from the NSF, whose aim is to encourage more talented students to major in STEM fields: science, technology, engineering, and math. The scholarship program is funded by U.S. greencard fees, in an effort to “homegrow” our own scientists and technical workers so that the U.S. companies will not have to import them.
