Ron McKenney Scholarship

This scholarship is in memory of Ron McKenney, who was Mayor of St. Pete Beach, Florida, until 2000. As Mayor, Mr. McKenney focused much of his efforts on providing parks and recreation facilities and programs to all citizens of the city. This scholarship will provide two students each year with a sum of money that will go toward his/her inclusive recreation services study abroad course fees. This program allows the students to encounter firsthand the challenges of navigating foreign destinations while dealing with disabilities. Ultimately, we hope students will, in turn, make changes that will improve the lives of people with disabilities here and abroad.
