Make It Count The Andrew D. KeithleyMemorial Scholarship Non-profit Corporation or ADKMIC was created to be a living legacy to Andy a beloved son, friend, and young man. Andrew left this life too soon and had been an example of “Making It Count” from day one. Those words ring true in day to day life for those that were close to him. The community of Lafayette High School came out in droves to honor this young man’s life and we are here to give back to the community that loves, enriches, encourages and supports their youth. ADKMIC promotes excelling in academics, community involvement, athletics, and fellowship.

Our Goal.

We are promoting a community that supports its youth in all things. Our goal is to give back to the community that gave Andrew so much.

Our Mission.

We are driven to honor Andrew and those that make it count in life, love, family, education, and community.


Andy had a this special calm presence on everyone he came in contact with. He was the person who would always make time for you, even when his schedule was busy. Andy was the oldest son of David and Christy Keithley. He was helpful, loving, willing, funny and an incredible example to those around him. Andy to stayed strong throughout tumultuous times and through these trials, his faith was a cornerstone.


Andy had a special needs brother, Charlie, who was two years younger than him. He had a close and unique relationship with him. Andy helped out lots always going above and beyond what was expected. He even wanted to learn sign language in high school to understand his brother better. Andy had a great and fun relationship with Luke and Delaney, his two younger siblings. He was a role model and example for them, but also knew how to add humor along the way. He loved to play tricks on them, always making life lively and fun within the home.


He was a student, an athlete, and a friend throughout his years in school. He always helped kids who felt out of place or needed an extra hand. He swam, played football, basketball, and volleyball. In addition, he was a dedicated member Young Life at Lafayette High School. His presence is missed greatly because of the rock he was to other students. Andy walked the walk, as the saying goes. He was the one that others looked up to and were inspired by. Andy had changed jobs so that he would have time in his schedule for sports, Young Life and still have time to socialize with friends and spend time with family. He had the ability to find balance in life.


Andy had a mantra, “make it count.” All of Andy’s achievements, as well as his humble, loving nature are proof that he lived up to that mantra and truly made his life count.
