Connor McMahon Scholarship

“Be great and make a difference.” - CM
In memory of Connor McMahon (September 13, 1999 – June 13, 2023)

Connor McMahon was preparing to start his 6th year as a Camp Counselor for the 2023 Summer Day Camp when his life was tragically taken on Tuesday, June 13, 2023. Connor played a large role within the Recreation Authority as Building Supervisor, Scorekeeper and Summer Day Camp Counselor during his time here.

Connor was known for bringing the energy. Each day, he came in with a positive attitude and had intentions of always creating the best day he could for others. He had a huge impact on others around him, whether it was the kids, parents or staff (mostly the kids!). He made everyone a better person. Connor was creative, thoughtful, determined and was a true inspiration to others. His character and personality is a main reason that the Recreation Authority is a special place.

As we know, Connor has touched many lives in this community. To carry on his legacy, the Recreation Authority has introduced a scholarship program to offer assistance to those families who financially otherwise cannot send their children to summer day camp programs.  In addition, funds for this scholarship may also be used for the McMahon family as needed.  Amounts available for scholarships will be determined each year based on funds available.  Please note that full scholarships will not be made available and that a “fair” amount be paid by the family so that each child that is eligible for a scholarship can have a chance to participate.  This scholarship will only be available to either Eastpointe, Roseville or Fraser residents. As we introduce this new 501c3, announcements for fundraisers and donations to the fund will be made available.
