Meet the Earle Family

For Ken and Lucy Earle, Scripps Ranch was the obvious choice when it came to raising their family. “We wanted to live in a community that was family-friendly, had great sports programs and schools, and had many areas to walk, hike, and run,” related Lucy, a homemaker with a background in elementary school education. She and Ken, who is the President of Earle Associates, Inc., have three children, all of whom have attended Jerabek Elementary School, Marshall Middle School, and Scripps Ranch High School. In fact Scott, their youngest, is going to be a junior at SRHS in the fall. Scott’s two older sisters, Andrea and Sydney, are proud SRHS alumni who have gone on to UC Berkeley. Andrea recently graduated from UC Berkeley’s Haas School of Business and has begun a career as an account development representative at Arrow Electronics in San Diego. Sydney will start her junior year at Cal in the fall.


Over the years, the Earle family has been extremely active in the Scripps Ranch sports community. “All three kids played on various teams, including soccer, softball, basketball, and baseball. Ken has coached in 92131 for more than 15 years in these sports. It’s amazing to think that he has coached more than 25 local teams!” exclaimed Lucy. Both Andrea and Sydney took their love of sports to Northern California and played field hockey at UC Berkeley. Scott is currently a member of the SRHS basketball and golf teams.

“We wanted to live in a community that was family-friendly, had great sports programs and schools, and had many areas to walk, hike, and run,” related Lucy.

In addition to their involvement in various sports activities, the Earle family is also dedicated to giving back to the community in many other ways. Lucy is an active volunteer for Meals on Wheels, and both she and Scott are involved with Teen Volunteers in Action (TVIA), an organization that performs community service throughout San Diego County. “At UC Berkeley, both Andrea and Sydney have volunteered at field hockey camps and children’s sports days on the campus. Andrea was also a peer tutor, and Sydney volunteered at a local elementary school,” related Lucy.


Although sports and volunteer endeavors keep this active family busy, they thoroughly enjoy spending time together. Each year the Earle clan takes a family trip to Cabo San Lucas, and closer to home they enjoy hiking and watching sporting events and movies. “We also love engaging in friendly competition as a family, playing ping pong, tennis, and board games whenever we have the chance,” said Lucy.
