Marc Mario McKently Memorial Scholarship Fund
Marc Mario McKently was a beloved member of the 2011 senior class at Oley Valley High School. When his life was cut short in a tragic car accident on Feb. 9, the whole school grieved. According to Alexandra Kubitz’s in memoriam published in the Reading Eagle, he “was captain of the soccer team, class clown, a brother, son, cousin and many more things to many people.” His classmates could be found writing his initials in the snow the next day, and wearing shirts with his name emblazoned on them to show their grief. These statements were powerful but transient, and those who knew him established the Marc Mario McKently Scholarship Fund so that the compassion he exhibited in life could continue on in helping other students.
