On the night of Tuesday, June 15th, 2021, the Oceanside Fire Department held a small ceremony in the Schoolhouse Green opposite fire headquarters to honor the recipients of the Kenny Marino scholarship. Marino grew up in Oceanside and at one time was a member of the Oceanside Fire Department as well as the Long Beach Fire Department. He went on to become a member of the FDNY where he was worked in various companies before being assigned to Rescue 1. Unfortunately, Kenny Marino was among those who made the ultimate sacrifice on September 11th. The scholarship, which helps ensure Kenny’s memory lives on, is awarded to graduating seniors whose parents are in the Oceanside Fire Department or FDNY. Various fundraisers held throughout the year by the Oceanside Fire Department held to fund the scholarship. On hand for the Tuesday evening ceremony were Kenny’s parents Pat and Mary Ann.
