McKale earned his Eagle Scout Award August 14, 2010 with Boy Scout Troop 54 and member of the Cho-Gun-Mun-A-Nock Order of the Arrow Lodge.

McKale was a member of 4-H, Pork Center Pioneers of Cedar County; and was well known for the love of his goats. He was the "The Heart Child" of Eastern Iowa Variety Club in 1998.
McKale never met a person he didn't like, and had a million questions for everyone to get to know them.
He loved his classmates, teachers, and helpers at Monticello, Franklin, Arthur, Lisbon, and Handicare.
