Guestbook

Mr. Carter was the Superintendent at Shepherd School when I was a librarian. He strongly supported Prayer at the Pole and was instrumental in allowing a Bachelorette service for the Seniors. I appreciated his encouragement of these Christian based events at school.

I am a student and Shepherd High School and seeing this shocked me, how could a man this amazing just be taken from the world so young, he was very kind to everyone he met, I sure do miss him saying good morning Mr. Lammers.

There are no words to tell you how sorry I am to hear about Scott. What an amazing man. I was lucky enough to be his secretary when he was the principal at Parsons High School & I enjoyed him so much! Scott (or Scooter as I lovingly called him) was so much fun to work with--you never knew what he was going to do or say. I am honored to have known him and am still so shocked he was taken from us way too soon. You are all in my thoughts and my prayers!

Scott was a long time friend of the family and classmate of my son Chuck. Ironically I spent many days hunting with the boys in the Marion area, year after year. They also camped out and canoed at the Marion lake many times.His smile and humor will be missed. Thank you Scott for being a part of the Powell family growing up.

I was a friend of Scotts from El Dorado. I remember how he always seemed to light up when he spoke to you; his big smile and big brown eyes. He may not have lived as long as we would have liked, but he sure lived with the time the lord gave him. Rest In Peace, Scott.
