This website is our nonprofit award project of 2022. The Big O Foundation and corresponding website intends to honor the life of Owen Eugene Skelley who passed away on March 3, 2022. The foundation aims to raise awareness of mental health issues and provide support to individuals wherever possible. We encourage you to get involved, make a donation, or volunteer. Any contribution of money or your time is most welcome and needed.
We utilized the color purple throughout the site to tie in with mental health and with the Liberty High School colors. Our donation of this website and the ongoing hosting and site management was initiated by an inquiry from a friend of the family and we were honored to be able to be a part of The Big O Foundation,
