University alumni Kyle Suico (’19) was driven by his curiosity, exploring topics ranging from bitcoin and economic policy to artificial intelligence. He was a person unparalleled in his dedication to these topics, eager to learn more and share this interest with the world. His curiosity was something that brightened the environment around him as well. His curiosity was infectious, expanding the knowledge that others around him had of the topics he focused on. This award is supported by the family of Kyle’s good friend, UHS alumnus Christian Moore.
