Kevin. M Eidt
On January 23rd, 1997, Kevin M. Eidt passed away due to cardiac arrest during an intramural basketball game at Boston College. A member of the honors program and dean’s list, Kevin was not only an exceptional student but also a devoted volunteer and model member of the Boston College community. Boston College EMS was formed later in 1997 with the mission of providing quality, emergency medical care to our campus in an effort to prevent any such tragedy from occurring again. That mission still endures today with the same passion and fervor that prompted its creation fourteen years ago. Each year at Boston College EMS' annual community banquet, the Kevin M. Eidt award is issued as our highest honor. Click here to learn about Kevin's Fund.
