The Emily Shane Foundation was founded following the tragic murder of Emily Rose Shane, at the age of 13 on April 3, 2010.

Emily was one of those amazing kids who was kind to all. She transcended cliques, advocated for those less fortunate, and was all about helping others. She was the one who would ask you to join her at the lunch table if you were sitting alone; who welcomed a new student to the school, who tried to cheer you up if you were sad.

She is remembered for her laughter and compassion.

She left a positive impression on anyone she met.
