Thanks to the generosity of Adam McCabe’s family and friends, a scholarship has been established in the Pius X Foundation in his memory. Adam McCabe, a 2005 alumnus of Pius X High School, has left behind a legacy that will benefit Pius X students for years to come.
Adam, son of Pat and Beth McCabe, and brother to Kevin, Leo, Maggie, Madeleine, Timmy and Joey, attended St. Teresa’s, Cathedral, St. Joseph’s and then Pius X. Adam attended UNL and then Southeast Community College. He was working for Midwest Tile, Marble, and Granite, Inc. in Oklahoma City when he passed away in a work related accident.
Adam died happy in Oklahoma City. He was always a Husker fan and never that of an Oklahoma Sooner. He will always be remembered for being such a gentleman, his kindness and love for life. He was a Purdue fan, an avid soccer fan, pet lover, a good and loyal friend and a wonderful, loving, big brother.
His kindness is what attracted many people to him, which is why this memorial scholarship has been named in his honor. Students who wish to be considered eligible for the Adam McCabe Memorial Scholarship for Kindness will have displayed a significant act of kindness.
Adam is missed dearly every day, especially his curly hair and smile. His family would like to thank all of the benefactors who contribute to the scholarship in Adam’s name.
