The Scioto Foundation announces the establishment of a new scholarship fund to benefit graduating seniors at Notre Dame High School, the Dane Patrick Memorial Scholarship. The scholarship was established in memory of Dane Patrick McMackin by his family.
Dane Patrick was the first grandson of Steve and Patty Tennant. Dane, who passed away shortly before birth, would have been 11 this September. The family decided to establish the scholarship to honor the memory of Dane.
“Establishing a scholarship in Dane’s memory is a tangible way to remember him, especially as we do things with and for our other grandchildren” according to Patty Tennant.
Seniors who participated in outstanding community service projects are eligible to apply for the scholarship. Annual selections for the scholarship will be made by the Scioto Foundation’s volunteer scholarship committee.
Donations to the fund may be sent to The Scioto Foundation, P.O. Box 911, 303 Chillicothe St. Portsmouth, OH 45662 at any time. More information about the scholarship may be obtained by contacting Patty Tennant, Scioto Foundation Program Officer for Donor Services.
