Various sources of information were gathered and analyzed to choose the winners in each category. The 2018 Cincinnati Award Program focuses on quality, not quantity. Winners are determined based on the information gathered both internally by the Cincinnati Award Program and data provided by third parties.

Meagan's Cheer Clinic

We would like to sincerely thank the Turpin Cheerleaders, coaches, parents, and all of the future cheerleaders and parents who made today a special event in Meagan's honor.  As Meagan's parents, watching the seniors today was bittersweet because you are the last group of "Meagan's girls."  We know she is very proud of all of you and the ways in which you have honored her memory during your time at Turpin.  For many of the younger cheerleaders, you knew our sweet Meagan as "Miss Meagan" from her many hours of volunteering at Mercer or perhaps times that she may have been your babysitter.  We continue to be grateful for the kindness and generosity of our community and the leadership of the Turpin Cheerleading program for this special event. 

With sincere gratitude,

The Oakley Family

Celebration to Remember

Thank you to all of our friends who came to celebrate Meagan last evening.  Yesterday was a day filled with many emotions as it is overwhelming to know and feel that she is still present in your hearts and minds, as she is in ours. There continues to be a tremendous void without her and a never ending ache in my heart.  It is because of your love and support that we are able to continue to keep Meagan's memory alive and more importantly, her lasting legacy of helping others.  Words cannot express how thankful we are to have friends like all of you.

With much love,

Melissa

Meagan's 3rd annual golf tournament

Thank you to everyone who made today such a special day and a celebration of our sweet Meagan.  This year saw the largest field of golfers to date!  We had a beautiful day with great friends to celebrate and support the continued work of our beautiful girl. We will update all of you on a grand total once we have everything settled.  Your continued support enables us to continue to ensure that Meagan serves children and their educational needs, her greatest hope and dream.  You have given Meagan a wonderful birthday celebration seen from heaven.  We know she was there today with us.  We saw the same butterfly circling the patio throughout the day.

God bless all of you and we look forward to seeing you next year in June.

With much gratitude,

Melissa, Tim, Samuel, Victoria, and Forever Meagan

Meagan's ripples

Meagan,

Your ripples continue to touch people in ways that we could never imagine.  You are such a special light who continues to shine for us and the people who love you, as well as complete strangers who never met you.  We will continue to spread your joy and passion in your honor, all the while with broken hearts and beautiful memories that we cherish.  We will continue to ensure that the students from Turpin, Wittenberg, and UC have learning opportunities provided through your scholarships. We hope that you are proud of this work and know you would be humbled that so many people love you and miss you.  As your family, we are humbled, honored, and so proud to that you chose us to spend 24 wonderful years with on this earth.  I continue to miss you each and every day.

Love you whole in this world,

Mommy

Run to Remember

Thank you to all of our friends who came out to remember and support Meagan's memory on Saturday.  We all continue to miss her more each day. The old saying that "time heals all" does not apply when thinking about or speaking about losing our sweet beloved Meagan.  Time only makes the void and emptiness greater each day that we experience without her infectious smile and warm gentle ways. We are so thankful to have the love and support of good friends to help us in our dark times and to spread Meagan's light.

I love you whole in this world Meagan! 

Mommy

Happy Birthday Meagan

Happy Birthday my sweet Meagan,

Oh how I wish you were here with us to celebrate your special day. Instead, I find this day to be so hard to get through. All I can think of is the first time I held your tiny body in my arms and how much you depended on me. Those beautiful big blue eyes staring at me. As you grew into the beautiful woman you became it was I who depended on you. You were always my sounding board and I could trust you always. I can feel your presence and know you are with us but it is not the same without you. We know you were with us at the golf tournament on Friday.  Danielle and Betsy and their families worked so hard to make it successful and a celebration of your life. It was a beautiful day and it was nice to see all of your true friends support you and your mission. 

Happy birthday my sweet angel.

I love you whole in this world,

Mommy
