Lucas Michael Olson Gravitt, 35, passed away Sunday, November 22, 2020. Born in Lexington, KY, he was the son of Michael (Kate) Gravitt, Richmond, TX and the late Anne Stevens Nickell.

Lucas studied at Georgetown College where he received his Bachelors of Arts in German and Education and later his Masters of Arts in Education and Instructional Technology. He was a dedicated German teacher for Scott County Schools where he served in many leadership roles. Lucas was also an Adjunct Professor at Georgetown College. Lucas received the German Embassy Teacher of Excellence Award in 2009, the KWLA New Teacher of the Year Award in 2010, a Goethe Institute Award from SCOLT to study in Berlin in 2015, and a Fulbright Award to study the German education system in Germany in 2016. He was named the American Association of Teachers of German-KY Teacher of the Year in 2017. Lucas served in leadership roles in state organizations, most recently, the President of the KY World Language Association. Devoted to his students, Lucas was the coordinator for Project Graduation, graduating senior activities, and graduation. He made sure as many of his students could travel to Germany as was possible. He enjoyed traveling, playing music, including handbells in church, and always shared his sense of humor with others, a kind word when it was most needed and a helping hand.

In addition to his father and step mother, he is survived by his sister, Meganne Vondell Gravitt; nieces, Hannah Marie Lawson and Dalylah Anne Crim; God son, Sebastian Robert Niederbroker; dear friend, Georgia Talbott; and so many friends, students and colleagues.

Due to restrictions imposed for the Covid-19 pandemic, a Celebration of Life will be held at a later date. Memorial contributions may be made to the Lucas Gravitt Memorial Fund (

Lucas, i can’t believe you are gone so soon! Your dedication to teaching, German and KWLA will not be forgotten. Wish I could give you a big hug and joke around with you again. You made a lasting legacy and an example for all of us to follow.

Herr Gravitt was one of those teachers that really cared about his students and could turn a life around. I was his student for three consecutive years at SCHS and he was one of those that truly believed in me despite everything.

There are so many fond memories, its impossible to pick or say them all. He picked on me relentlessly in school and I picked on him as well. We had a very close student teacher relationship and I could depend on him for just about anything. One of our longest battles was me attempting to get him to buy me lunch. He gave me about 50 words of extra vocabulary to study in a week and no! I never got a 100 on those extra quizzes. So I never won my free lunch. Over time, I just kinda forgot about it and never brought it up. However, for my birthday on my senior year, I got a text asking what I would like from Panera that morning. When I walked into his class during lunch there was a bag of food sitting and waiting for me.

Its the little things that make a teacher stand out. It's the care and attention they give to the little things. I'm so fortunate to have been one of his students, and his memory will never be forgotten. Goodbye.

Oh Lucas, I have been crying for days. We just spoke 2 weeks ago and you were excited to play handbells again. In your memory, I have a piece of you playing. You were in my German class at WCHS and from there you took that knowledge and exploded it with teaching and gobs of amazing accolades. My prayers are to your sister, Dad, and family. I can't imagine their pain with you gone so soon. Why do the good die young. πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ’•
