With the surrounding community’s generous support, Ryan Scannell founded the Caitlin Scannell Memorial Scholarship Fund to honor his “baby” sister’s memory. Caitlin Scannell was a 17-year old junior at Campbellsport High School when she and fellow students Sabrina Stahl and Katie Berg lost their lives in a car accident on February 4, 2012.
Caitlin touched the lives of everyone she met. Her smile would light up the room and her laugh was infectious. She brought joy and happiness wherever she went. She was a friend to all, treated everyone with love and respect, and always found the good in others.
Caitlin excelled academically and was ranked second in her class. She loved sports and played varsity and club volleyball, as well as varsity and club soccer. She sang in chorus and flashed her beautiful smile while on stage. She was an avid Brewers fan and she loved to travel.
She was a very giving soul. Caitlin volunteered her time to her church and community. Even in her death she donated her tissues to improve the lives of others and she donated her big beautiful brown eyes so others could see.
