Basketball Tournament Fundraiser Reminder March 25th "Marge Madness"

Maggie taken about 5 years ago in Newton, NC.  She was coaching varsity girls basketball at Newton Conover High School.

There is still time to make plans to attend the 3rd annual "Marge Madness" basketball tournament to raise funds for the Maggie Daniels Memorial Scholarship. The tournament will be held on March 25th at St. Joseph Academy on Rocky River Dr., Cleveland. The tournament will be 3-on-3 format basketball games. There will be a raffle and silent auction. A social hour Saturday evening, 5-8:30 pm, will be held at the Masthead Brewing Company. The Daniels-Green family would like to thank St. Joseph Academy for the use of their facilities.

Maggie was born and raised in Lakewood. She attended St. Luke grade school, St. Joseph Academy and eventually graduated from Magnificat HS. She went on to get her teaching degree from Notre Dame College. All through these years Maggie played basketball. Maggie then relocated to Hickory, NC, where she became an English Literature teacher and basketball coach. After five years in the Newton-Conover school system, Maggie transferred to Discovery HS in Newton, NC. She aspired to be a student counselor and as such, enrolled at Appalachian State University to get her degree. She was one week shy of getting her degree when she taken from us in a violent crime.  

In her much too short time, Maggie touched countless peoples’ lives through her kindness, patience, and infectious smile.  We honor Maggie and carry on her legacy of doing good for others by offering a yearly scholarship to a woman at St. Joseph Academy.
