Our Mission

Following Kevin F. Kennelly, Jr.’s tragic death in July 2011, a scholarship fund was established in his memory. Kevin, a Beverly resident and 2008 graduate of St. Barnabas, was entering his senior year at Mt. Carmel High School. He was an excellent student, was in the Honors Program for academics, and was active in football, varsity soccer and his beloved baseball.

This memorial scholarship fund serves to honor Kevin’s memory by giving back to the community and schools that he so dearly loved. The Fund will award annual scholarships to eighth grade students who embrace the ideals of family, work, tradition, community and non-violence as Kevin did throughout his life.
