Michael McNally's Story
In December 2010 Michael was severely injured when struck from behind by a driver while riding his bike on the campus of St. Edwards University in Austin, Texas. The past several years have been unbelievably challenging for Michael and his family as he makes a prolonged and painstaking recovery. Those who have followed his recovery, however, will tell you that Michael is one of the most inspiring individuals they’ve encountered. Michael was an outstanding Cross Country and Track athlete at OLSH, thus a 5K to support the scholarship in his name is fitting.
We hope to continue to honor the McNally family for years to come. In order to ensure its sustainability, this scholarship will be endowed. The McNally Endowed Scholarship will begin one year after the fund has reached $25,000. The McNally family will be involved in the creation of criteria for the scholarship and recipient selection.
