    Scott Horstman’s daughter, Amanda Horstman, recently passed away this weekend. Below is message from Central campus President Dr. Neil Matkin and information about services.


    It is with great sadness that I announce the passing of Scott Horstman’s fourteen year old daughter, Amanda Horstman. Amanda experienced a severe and life threatening asthma attack on July 17 and passed away on July 24.  Scott Horstman is currently the Athletic Director and Department Chair on Central Campus and has served over twenty years as coach and faculty member.  Our deepest sympathies go out to Scott and his family on this difficult and unexpected loss.

    In lieu of usual remembrances, a Memorial Fund has been established in Amanda’s name at Gulf Coast Educators Credit Union.

    A CaringBridge website was set up for Amanda.  Under journal entries you will read where Amanda was able to save the lives of four people.  Her heart is going to save a 20 year old, her liver will save a patient at St. Luke’s, one of her kidneys will save a young child at Texas’ Children’s, and her other kidney will save an adult’s life. What an awesome legacy she is leaving.
