On November 26, 2022 The Cynwyd Club hosted a non US Squash sanctioned
charity tournament which benefitted the Lower Merion Township Scholarship in memory of
Kiran Khurana. Kiran, along with her parents, was tragically killed in a plane accident in
August 2019, and this terrible loss has been felt throughout the community.
Kiran was a 2018 graduate of Harriton High School. She participated in Lower
Merion’s district-run squash program beginning in elementary school and throughout
her middle and high school years. Kiran’s tenacity and
work ethic were matched off the court with strong academic skills and a love for
learning. The Harriton/Lower Merion community misses Kiran and honors
The “I Play for Kiran” Tournament has been held in Kiran’s honor since 2019. The Kiran Khurana Memorial Scholarship is given annually to a graduate of the Lower Merion School District. Many thanks to all the participants and especially to Sheryl Bartos who organized the event and supported this grant.
