I met Shawn his first day of the 7th grade as his guidance counselor, followed by his sister Breanna. I have thought about him often and am so sorry to hear of his passing. He had an infectious smile, was royal and cared deeply for others, especially his family. Shawn had a tough time in middle school as most adolescents do, but he never made excuses and so much potential. I will always remember Shawn and that smile. My deepest sympathy to Shawn's family. May he rest in peace.
