Letters to the Editor
On May 30, I was part of a group of people who gave away 17 $2,000 scholarships to graduating seniors at Coral Shores. Quite an accomplishment for a small group of people who formed a foundation called the Nick Sheahan Scholarship fund 13 years ago. Thirteen years ago is when our community lost a kid named Nick to a diving accident in the Bahamas. Little did we all know he died of “shallow water blackout,” which has now become quite familiar to our Keys kids since his passing. It was a very sad time for Coral Shores and the students and Nick’s closest friends, one of which was my youngest son Mike.
