Carolynn Cosan Memorial Scholarship Fund


Scholarship Value: $600
Awards Available: 1

Carolynn Cosan was an inspiration and a mentor to her friends. Carolynn touched the lives of so many and was loved by all. She demonstrated kindness, respect, and responsibility throughout her life by taking care of the needs of her teammates and friends before considering her own well-being. Her love and deep affection for others also helped her develop the confidence and courage to make right that what she felt was wrong. She worked hard for and was honored as the first ever female Mt. Pleasant High School senior to receive a combined academic and athletic scholarship to play Division II soccer. However, she died in a tragic car accident two weeks prior to high school graduation. Carolynn's short life was like a comet, burning brightly through our lives and leaving impressions upon us all.

Carolynn's life was full; she was a Girl Scout, a Police Academy Youth Services Cadet, she played varsity soccer for four years, ran track and cross country, participated in gymnastics, softball, and freestyle snowboard competitions. Carolynn was also a member of the National Wildlife Turkey Federation, and competed as an AKC junior dog handler. Carolynn demonstrated her charismatic leadership abilities as captain of the soccer team her senior year, and coached a children's soccer team for Mt. Pleasant. She also became a certified snowboard instructor through the Professional Snowboarding Instructors of America, and was successfully certified as a soccer referee with both the Michigan Youth Soccer Association and the Michigan High School Athletic Association.

The scholarship created in Carolynn's memory will be awarded each year to a graduating senior female from an Isabella County High School who has participated in a varsity sport, club sport, refereed, coached, or taught a sport, or was a member of the Girl Scouts. Candidates for the Carolynn Cosan Memorial Scholarship will demonstrate that they have a positive attitude and leadership skills on and off the field, have developed a responsible work ethic, commitment to the team, and respect for rules and the rights of others. It is the Cosan family's desire that individuals who are awarded this scholarship will strive to become valuable citizens of their community by contributing to the welfare of those in need, and brighten the lives of those who they touch, like the dust that was emitted from Carolynn's comet.
