Keeping memories alive
Three years after her death, friends and family are still keeping the memory of Nicole Scontsas alive.
Scontsas and friend Stephanie McGowan, both 16, were killed in an automobile accident in June 2006. They were students at Nashua High School North.
Later that summer, a concert was held in Greeley Park to raise money for a scholarship in the girls’ honor.
There are plans for another concert to be held this summer, said Scott MacDougald, who coached Scontsas on the high-school tennis team. The Nicole Scontsas Memorial Concert will be held Aug. 22 at Greeley Park. The rain date is Aug. 23.
MacDougald said the concert is dedicated only to Scontsas because he could not get permission from the McGowan family to make it in honor of both girls.
MacDougald said he is still looking for bands to play at the concert, as well as anyone who wants to donate prizes or help out the day of the concert. Anyone interested should e-mail MacDougald at packersox@ yahoo.com.
