The family and friends of Alivia “Livi” Paige Moylan continue to keep her memory alive through local community events, such as the first annual “Livi Strong” Soccer Fest held in June. A large crowd came together for the day to celebrate her life and love of soccer, and to benefit a scholarship fund established in her honor.
The Alivia Paige Moylan Memorial Scholarship Fund at the Community Foundation of Herkimer and Oneida Counties was created by the Moylan family following 12-year-old Livi’s passing in May 2020 to honor and remember her spirit for many years to come. The fund will soon begin awarding scholarships to Whitesboro Central School District graduates who exemplify Livi’s commitment to athletics, academics, friendship, and community, and who have a special interest in healthcare or the veterinary science field.
“Livi was a 7th grade honor student at Whitesboro Middle School and she did a little bit of everything,” said Alivia’s mother Virginia Moylan. “She excelled at academics, instrumental music, was a gymnast at Valley Gymnastics, played AYSO soccer and youth basketball with Mohawk Valley Elite, and was an active Junior Auxiliary member at the Whitestown American Legion Post 1113 since birth. She was a team player through and through. We are fortunate to be able to keep her memory alive through these events and in turn this fund that will help so many students just like our Livi.”
