The MacKenna Barnes Memorial Scholarship

MacKenna “Mac” Barnes of Virginia Beach had just turned 19 when his life was tragically cut short in December 2020.

Mac had a huge heart and a gentle way. He deeply loved his family and friends. He was quick witted and had a competitive spirit. He loved all things computer and played soccer in Virginia Beach from an early age.
The pain from losing Mac will be forever. But as friends, family and community, we can pull together to create a positive living memory of Mac by creating soccer scholarships for youth in Virginia Beach who share his love of soccer and who otherwise would not be able to afford to play.

In tribute to Mac and to keep his memory alive, we are working closely with Old Dominion Soccer Club to identify candidates who can most benefit from financial scholarships to play soccer. We have chosen Old Dominion Soccer Club because it represents everything that we embrace as a family, that all kids should have the opportunity to play competitive sports regardless of income, but we also recently learned that Mac’s step-mom, Shannon, played for Old Dominion when she was a youngster.

If you would like to join us in providing a legacy for Mac that pays it forward to others in need, then please make your tax-deductible donation check payable to Old Dominion Soccer Club with “MacKenna Barnes Memorial Scholarship” in the memo line or click the PayPal link above.

With humble hearts, we thank you!

Douglas P. Barnes, Jr., Shannon Connery Barnes and Degan Barnes of Smithtown, New York and Jacob Wood, Ashlie Weeks Wood and Maddox Wood of Virginia Beach, Virginia.
