In January of 2006, our community tragically lost McKenzie Travis in a car accident at the young age of nineteen years old. She is missed by her friends, family, and community every day, which is why the McKenzie Travis Educational Foundation was started. This is a scholarship fund that keeps McKenzie’s memory alive and gives hope for young women of the future. A committee comprised of education and athletic professionals as well as non-family members that knew McKenzie well awards a local female student-athlete this scholarship. This is a way that the community can remember McKenzie that has a positive impact on our community’s sports and education.
Funds for this altruistic cause are raised by purchasing tickets for the 2016 McKenzie Travis Educational Foundation Raffle. The drawing will be held at Preston Ford at noon on December 10th. There will be eight cash prizes worth $2,500 plus the top prize for this raffle is a brand new 2017 Ruby Red Ford Escape Titanium from Preston Ford.
