McKinney-Marshall Scholarship Winner Announcement
Rotary District 6250
April 2024
The McKinney-Marshall Scholarship Committee is happy to announce that Ms. Elena Meloy of Madison Wisconsin is the 2024 recipient of the McKinney-Marshall Scholarship. 
The McKinney/Marshall Scholarship is given in honor of two individuals, Jeremiah McKinney and Dr. Tom Marshall. Jeremiah McKinney was an outbound exchange student to Japan. His family did not have the financial means to provide for Jeremiah to go on exchange. Jeremiah was a bright student who decided he would work extremely hard to raise the funds so that he could go on exchange. Through his efforts, he was able to make enough money to go on exchange to Japan. His exchange year was everything he had hoped for. Unfortunately, not long after his return from Japan, he was in a fatal car accident. The La Crosse Valley View Rotary club established a scholarship in his honor.
Tom Marshall has been a devoted Rotary Youth Exchange leader for over 30 years. He has held several positions in the Rotary Youth Exchange program. The positions include club Youth Exchange Officer, District Outbound Coordinator, and as a country correspondent for Central States Youth Exchange. In 2001, the Tom Marshall Fund was established to honor the many years of service Dr. Marshall had given to Rotary Youth Exchange. It was formed as an emergency fund to help students who experienced unexpected financial need.
Those two funds are now merged to form the McKinney-Marshall Rotary Youth Exchange Scholarship.
Ms. Meloy is sponsored by the Madison Breakfast Club.  She will be spending her 2024-2025 school year in Japan.  This years recipient was awarded $1000.00.  
Please join us in recognizing and congratulating Elena Meloy of Madison.
