SCOTT YEAGY MEMORIAL SCHOLARSHIPScott J. Yeagy, Curley Class of 2000, was a talented young man taken too early from this earth. Scott passed suddenly on August 2, 2009 at the age of 26. Coupled with deep sadness, there comes relief in knowing that his family and friends can contribute to the future of many more young men passing through the halls of Curley with a scholarship in Scott’s name. Scott Yeagy was an excellent student, and a lettered Varsity Soccer player. His four years at Curley afforded him the opportunity to build a strong network of friends who will always be touched by his presence in their lives. Please join us in paying tribute to Scott by helping to reach our goal of $25,000 to begin the Scott J. Yeagy Memorial Endowed Scholarship.
Scott (also known as “Scotty” to most of his friends and family) was a neighbor to Curley for most of his life. He was born in Baltimore and grew up on Brendan Avenue. He attended Brehms Lane Elementary, achieving Student of the Year, and then went on to attend Northeast Middle School. He played soccer for Shrine of the Little Flower School beginning at age 4, and later attended Curley with many of his teammates. Scott played club soccer all over the east coast, and because of his love of sports, he joined an ice hockey team, a baseball team, and basketball team. Scott decided to attend Archbishop Curley for four great years. He excelled in the classroom, and was always the first one with a joke to tell, and a sly smile to follow. He was a star on the soccer field, quietly maneuvering the ball before his opponents could even detect his approach. Scott’s four years at Curley prepared him for success by helping him achieve a full scholarship to Loyola College in Maryland, where he graduated with a degree in Psychology. He was beginning work at Johns Hopkins University on his Masters Degree, and looked forward to a promising life of helping others through research on the human brain.
Scotty loved spending time with his family, his friends, and his fiancé, Megan. He was the first one to gather family members who may not be speaking because of a disagreement, always vowing to bring others closer together. He loved to cook with his fiancé and try out new recipes on his family members. He had a profound appreciation for nature, including fresh vegetables grown from the earth, and the joy of a bike ride or hike followed by an evening camping. He would also spend hours tailgating with friends before attending the Ravens game, his favorite pastime! The Ravens games, in fact were his biggest passion, because they gave him an opportunity to gather with his friends and family to share a lot of laughs! He was always the first with a quirky comment, just to see the smile on someone’s face.
Scott’s family would like nothing more than to spread the joy that Scott experienced at Curley to other young men looking for a promising future. Scott loved to surround himself with warmth from friends and family, including the extended Curley family. He would be proud to see his legacy extended to others in the years to come.
