Mark Stroia Memorial Scholarship

This scholarship fund will serve to preserve the memory of Mark S. Stroia.  The proceeds from the fund will go towards: college expenses for his children, Sydney and Kyle, and to providing scholarships for deserving student athletes of Hoover High School. 

Mark Stroia was a 1986 graduate of North Canton Hoover High School.  He excelled in football, attending Kent State University on a Football Scholarship.  Mark was very active in the North Canton community, coaching youth football and lacrosse.  He also was a member of the Orange Crush boosters for many years.  He worked at Gregory Industries for 23 years.  It would be difficult to find someone who had anything but positive things to say about Mark.  He was a great husband, father, son, brother and friend and will be missed by all.
