FAMILY, SRU HEALTH AND SAFETY DEPARTMENT ESTABLISH SCHOLARSHIP

TO HONOR KYLE S. McFEELY KILLED IN TRAFFIC ACCIDENT

      SLIPPERY ROCK, Pa.  The Steven McFeely family of Grove City along with Slippery Rock University’s health and safety department have established the Kyle S. McFeely Memorial Scholarship to honor the 22-year-old SRU junior killed in a two-car, Pine Township accident Oct. 14.

     Dr. Joseph Cali, department chair and one of Mr. McFeely’s teachers, said, “Kyle was a terrific person who was respected and loved by his friends, classmates and family. He served his country in the National Guard and was stationed in Europe. He was also an officer of our American Society of Safety Engineers, student chapter and worked at General Electric, where he was involved in safety management where he earned high praise from his supervisors. He was a leader, a friend, and a loving son and brother. His sister, Amber, is a safety management student at SRU.  He will be missed."

     The goal of the Kyle McFeely Scholarship is to create an endowment that will enable the scholarship program to exist in perpetuity. The scholarship will be available to SRU senior safety and environmental management majors. The first preference in selecting a recipient will be a rising senior who most represents the values for which Mr. McFeely stood: strong moral values, good citizenship and a determination to succeed.

     Contributions are being accepted by the Slippery Rock University Foundation, Inc., 100 Old Main, Slippery Rock, Pa. 16057. Leading the scholarship creation were Mr. McFeely’s parents, Steven and Sally McFeely of Grove City, and his sister.
