Watertown Philanthropist Garry McGivney Passes Away
The local community is mourning the death of Watertown philanthropist Garry McGivney.
One of the scholarships he created was the North Pleasant Street Scholarship Fund; McGivney once resided on that street.
He also established the John C. Prentice Memorial Scholarship Fund.
"Focusing on establishing the two scholarships was something that was very important to him. His devotion to the community was very evident just on how philanthropic he was through his donations to us," said Max DelSignore of the Northern New York Community Foundation.
