Sandy Casey Scholarship Fund

The Sandy Casey Scholarship Fund was established by the family of Sandy Casey to honor the life of the East Dorset native killed in the Las Vegas shooting on Oct. 1, 2017.

Sandy Casey was a remarkable young woman who found joy and purpose in life in helping and teaching others. A Burr and Burton Academy graduate, she earned degrees at the College of Saint Joseph in Rutland and at Assumption College before pursuing a career in special education in Manhattan Beach, Calif. Sandy's basketball coaches at Burr and Burton admired her positive attitude and teamwork, and her teachers remembered her spirit, energy and enthusiasm. Manhattan Beach Unified School District Superintendent Michael Matthews called Sandy "a spectacular teacher who devoted her life to helping some of our most needy students." 

The first scholarship will be awarded to a college-bound senior, enrolled in a Bennington County public or private high school, whose character mirrors Sandy Casey’s, especially her interest in special education. The first recipient of what will be at least a $2,500 scholarship will be announced at the second annual Bennington Banner-Manchester Journal All-Star Gala in June. A committee, including Sandy’s father Steven Casey, the president and the publisher of The Bennington Banner and Manchester Journal, and a representative of Burr and Burton Academy, will establish formal scholarship guidelines that will be posted shortly after the new year. Students who have demonstrated excellence in achievement, an interest in the field of education and a financial need are encouraged to apply.

Donations may be made directly to the Sandy Casey Scholarship Fund, in care of the Bennington Banner, 425 Main St., Bennington, VT 05201; or by donating on this page. Donations are tax-deductible.
