Amanda Shankle was loved by everyone and she loved everyone. In 17 short years, with an amazing smile on her face, she made a mark on the world that most people would hope to do in a lifetime. Although a fight with Leukemia took her life in 2012, her spirit lives on today in everyone that knew her.
She is also remembered through the Amanda Shankle Scholarship Fund which is annually awarded to a Hulbert High Senior. On November 4th, Amanda's Run 5k and Fun Run will be held to as a benefit to support the scholarship fund.
