Finnen, Caila I.T. Memorial Scholarship


The Caila Isabel Teresa Finnen Memorial Scholarship was established to honor the memory of Caila, who was a member of the North Carroll High School Class of 2008. The goal of this Fund will be to allow worthy middle-income students an opportunity to obtain a college education. The focus will be for those students who have demonstrated an interest in pursuing a career in the field including, but not limited to, psychology, early childhood education, or special education. On July 5th, 2007 we lost Caila in a tragic car accident. At her young age of 16, she had already set goals for her career as a psychologist and counselor of underprivileged children and troubled teens. She was set to be a peer counselor in her senior year at North Carroll. Her interests were so varied that it is hard to list them all: they included lacrosse, theatre, music, and foreign travel. As a lacrosse player, Caila was more of a cheerleader for her team than an accomplished player, but was always excited about her team’s progress and was willing to “go in” whenever she was called on. She had improved greatly in her junior year and was planning to play more in her senior year. Theatre was a new interest for Caila; she truly enjoyed acting. She enjoyed all the aspects of theatre and was willing to be involved even if it was as a stage hand or make-up artist. She had plans of increasing her theatre participation as a senior. Caila was also extremely excited about a school trip to Greece and Italy planned for the summer of 2008. Most of all, Caila was proud of her friends. She did not judge people by the color of their skin, height of their stature, or the girth of their frame. Above all, this scholarship is dedicated to the memory of Caila Finnen, who lives on in the hearts of those who loved her.
