      Laurel Schultz, 1947-2014

      SCYC is saddened that emeritus member Laurel Schultz passed away on Saturday, March 14 at the far-too-early age of 67.

      Laurel was tireless in her efforts for SCYC for many years, including offering invaluable advice and assistance this past fall for our highly successful Johnny Artis event. She sold tickets from her salon at Twisters, offered tips on logistics and setup, and had hoped to participate in SCYC more heavily this year. However, multiple surgeries in 2014 prevented her from being her usual “force of nature” self. She was extremely proud of this organization and her cheery personality will be missed.

      Thoughts and prayers are with her mother Bonnie and family.
