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 2 months a year for the past 28 summers, camp was Scott’s home.  He first came to camp as a reluctant camper whose mother, Linda, gave him prepared fill-in-the-bubble notes to send home to Long Island.  He returned year after year, until he became a beloved staff member and counselor.  The other 10 months of the year Scott couldn’t quite find the same feeling of stability.  That is until the summer of 2017, when the trail from camp led him to Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, 1300 miles away in Parkland, FL.  where he took a job as a nineth-grade geography teacher and cross country coach.

“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.”
