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.

Its an experience for the camp staffers too. Meeting and connecting with people from different backgrounds is so essential to the memories everyone builds at camp.

We are proud to partner with Camp Herrlich for the summer of 2021. This partnership is especially needed this year—Camp Herrlich was hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic, which both prevented campers from traveling out of the city in the summer of 2020 and cancelled many of the fundraising events held by other organizations to benefit the camp’s scholarship fund. Getting up and running for summer 2021 is a challenge that will be well worth the effort knowing that $35,000 in scholarship funds from the Scott J. Beigel Memorial Fund for campers are available.

Camp Herrlich gives kids the opportunity to experience the great outdoors, where Scott thrived as both a camper as a counselor. We love being able to give underserved kids the chance to experience the joy of summer camp—the same joy that drove Scott in his lifelong work to make a positive impact in the lives of children.
