Keeping Kit Faragher's Legacy Alive!

Kathleen "Kit" Faragher was a woman full of life, love and enthusiasm. She committed herself to everything she did whether it was her career, her studies, or having fun. Kit's smile, positive attitude and love brought joy to her family and friends. Although her life was cut short, Kit attained happiness, love and success

Kit Faragher lost her life in the tragic events of September 11, 2001. Kit had worked for Janus Capital Corporation in Denver, Colorado for almost seven years. In her memory, the Janus Foundation began the Kit Faragher Memorial Scholarship for students entering college in the 2002 to 2003 school year. The Faragher family, with great assistance and financial support from the Janus Foundation, has continued the scholarship through the formation of the Kit Faragher Foundation. Organized in April 2003, the Kit Faragher Foundation has provided annual scholarships to students since then.
