    On November 6th, 2014 I sent my son McKenzie to the store to get him and I a couple sodas so that we might watch a movie together never imagining what might happen next! About 20 minutes later I receive a call that my son had been  pistol whipped and shot with a handgun! As you all know that just doesnt happen here! There is much speculation as to why this happened but the simple fact is: IT DID! 

    McKenzie is a bright 23 year old with a kind heart and a future ahead of him! He has a family that loves him and many friends! Because of McKenzie's big heart and the passion he has for trying to make something good come out of this we have all decided that we cannot let this terrible event be just that! Although the family has suffered a terrible financial blow and desperatlly needs all of your help, we have also made the decision to donate half of all the donations into a living memorial scholarship fund in McKenzie's name!

     The McKenzie Cory Alexander Living Memorial Scholarship Fund will be set up through a local bank so that the money is secure and handled in the right way. Each year the money will be given to a high school senior who against all odds has finished and is looking to either further their education in Culinary Arts, which is McKenzie's passion, or in Social Work, in honor of the people that have been so helpful and kind to us!

    The other half of the money will be used by McKenzie and his family to offset the medical, transportation, and general costs that are a result of this tragic event!

    Please do what you can to make this happen and to make things a little easier on the family!

    We appreciate you all and love each and every one of you! 

                                                           Thank you for your support,

                                                             The Family of McKenzie!
