Casey Quinn Scholarship Fund

A memorial scholarship fund has been established by Casey’s long-time friends Laura Bauer, April Doering, Kristen Fischer and Lisa Cavallari. The goal of the scholarship is honor Casey and to raise funds and establish opportunities for students interested in joining the Mankato Area 77 Lancers.

From 1994-1995, Casey was member of the Lancers, an organization that upholds those traits Casey inspired in his daily life: spirit, strength, perseverance, and friendship.
