The Bill McKenna Scholarship Fund encourages young people to participate in St. Louis hockey as ice hockey officials. Through these efforts, the area hockey community will benefit from qualified referees to officiate the increasing number of youth hockey games.
About Bill and The Scholarship Fund
A founding member of the Kirkwood Youth
Hockey Association in 1968, Bill McKenna was
active within the many facets of St. Louis hockey
until his death in 1997.
Bill had the right attitude about youth sports.
His optimism and sportsmanship were as much
evident in his enjoyment of the game as in the
positive mark he made upon St. Louis hockey.
As a veteran referee, Bill didn't just enforce the
rules, he also encouraged the integrity of the
game. Most of all, he took the welfare of his
players to heart: truly the “Referee of Referees”!
Over the years, the Missouri Ice Hockey Officials
Association (MIHOA) has been a principal donor
to The Bill McKenna Scholarship Fund. Through
continuing fund raising efforts and contributions
from individuals and organizations such as the St. Louis Blues Fourteen Fund, Bill's contribution to St. Louis hockey – both on- and off-ice – is honored through the academic assistance his fund offers to St. Louis area students.
