Carmen Marie Schentrup
A mind to be reckoned with
She was a well-rounded individual; she excelled in academics, loved to shop, and enjoyed singing in her church's choir.
She was admired by her peers as a National Merit Finalist and a straight-A student. She embraced her personality and never changed for anyone. She had an optimistic outlook on life and a bright future ahead of her. She was accepted to the University of Florida honors program and aspired to cure ALS.
Carmen Marie Schentrup, 16, was shot and killed in her advanced placement psychology class at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, on Feb. 14, 2018, a week before her 17th birthday.
