ABOUT SCOTT J. BEIGEL MEMORIAL FUND

The Scott J. Beigel Memorial Fund is a 501(c)(3) organization created in response to the tragic loss of Scott J. Beigel, the geography teacher and cross country coach at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School where 17 innocent people died from gun violence. The fund provides camperships to help send at-risk children touched by gun violence to summer sleep-away camp.

Scott loved working with children and teaching afforded him the ability to continue with one of his life’s passions, working at sleep-away camp. He worked diligently to have a positive impact on every child, no matter how young or old, no matter what the issues. It is for this reason that we created the Scott J. Beigel Memorial Fund, to combine Scott’s two life passions: his love for summer camp and his desire to teach and mentor children.

ABOUT SCOTT BEIGEL

Scott Beigel was a teacher. A cross-country coach. A counselor. A son. A brother. An uncle. A grandchild. A nephew. A cousin. A friend.

He died a hero for his actions at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, where he taught geography and coached cross-country.

For 28 summers camp was Scott’s home away from home. He first went to camp at the age of seven. His mother Linda gave him pre-addressed and stamped “fill-in-the-bubble” stationary to send home so he would not have to write letters at rest time. Scott returned year after year, becoming a beloved counselor and staff member. The summer of 2018 would have been Scott’s 29th consecutive summer at camp. In 2017, Scott joined the staff of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland FL. where he accepted the positions of ninth-grade geography teacher and cross-country coach. Teaching, mentoring, guiding and helping children of all ages flourish became Scott’s mission in life.

“He was a hero before he saved these lives. Just as many people who will be talking about Scott would be calling him a hero even if this didn’t occur. Obviously, a tragedy,” Beigel’s sister Melissa Zech said Saturday.

“Scott Beigel wasn’t a hero because he opened the door to his classroom at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School that day. He was a hero because he opened doors every day.”

Dear Michael and Linda-

Your son seemed like an extraordinary young man, and Michelle and I grieve alongside you.

We can only imagine the hardship you are going through; hopefully all the wonderful memories can help ease the pain.

We’ll get the details about your fund in his honor. In the meantime, you are in our thoughts and prayers.

Today, President Joe Biden signed this landmark legislation into law.

This would have never happened without the determination and hard work of Senator Chuck Schumer , Senator Chris Murphy , Senator Cory Booker , Senator Amy Klobuchar , Senator Mark Kelly , Kyrsten Sinema and the entire Senate Democratic Caucus plus 15 brave Republicans.

This is not the beginning of the end, but the end of the beginning. There is more work that needs to be done, and more legislation to pass such as universal background checks, an assault weapon ban as well as limiting magazine size.

We will get this done. We must get this done. Everyone has the right to be safe, everyone has a right to live without fear.
