Former student-athlete Jack Mackey ’16 was named a recipient of the Sport Changes Life Victory Scholar Program.

Victory Scholars are “driven young athletes who spend a year mentoring young people through sport in communities in Northern Ireland and Ireland, while studying for their Masters degree and continuing to play the sport they love.” This year, 23 scholars will embark on a life-changing experience of community outreach initiatives, and academic and athletic fulfillment to help mold the lives of young people and enable them to develop a global perspective.

With the help of The Rory Foundation, the Victory Scholars program will send its scholars to Belfast, Northern Ireland for two weeks of training. Mackey will then take his place at the prestigious Letterkenny Insititue of Technology in Donegal, Ireland.
