The Cole McMahon Heart of Gold Scholarship Fund was established in 2020 at the Oil City YMCA. The YMCA created the fund with Cole’s parents, Malachy and Dolly McMahon and brother Logan, in memory of Cole, whose life was cut short in a tragic car accident at the age of 24.
Cole enjoyed sports and loved working out at the YMCA. He had a heart of gold and enjoyed helping others. Cole was dedicated to everything he did. Throughout his school career, he had perfect attendance. He was an honors student in high school and college.
Cole was in his first year of teaching at Ft. LeBouf High School and was the Assistant Football Coach when his life was tragically cut short in 2006.
Cole’s friends and teachers at Oil City High School enjoyed his big personality and his love for all people. Throughout his life Cole enjoyed football, basketball, swimming, baseball, weight-lifting, track, golf and motocross racing. Cole was humble, kind and enjoyed helping others.
With the support of Cole’s friends, family, and the Oil City community, Cole’s legacy will live on through the Cole McMahon Heart of Gold Scholarship Fund at the YMCA.
