Vincent McKinney was a beautiful, kind, and loving soul who saw the best in others. His passions were music and football. He was an accomplished athlete in high school and college. He was also an accomplished academic, graduating as the valedictorian of his high school class and Magna Cum Laude with a 4.0 and a BS degree in psychology. His sense of humor was infectious and he was wickedly intelligent, moving to NYC and obtaining his Series 7 License as a stockbroker within 7 days.
He was always passionate about being positive and supporting others, believed in the power of knowing and understanding yourself, and was adamant about reaching for excellence.
My brother Vincent McKinney just passed on December 28th, 2022. He was an aspiring mental health professional and I want to create a scholarship that memorializes him and supports excellence in mental health support services and education.
