2018: Maggie Webb Scholarship Fund

Deadline: March 16 2018 at 11:59 PM CDT (Midnight)


Description

The daughter of David and Vicki Webb, Maggie Laine Webb grew up in Moline attending Franklin Elementary School, and Wilson Middle School before graduating from Moline High School in 2001. She was involved in many high school activities including Contemporaires, girls' basketball, and Dad's Club softball. Maggie graduated from Illinois State University in 2005 with a BA in Business Administration.

As a senior in high school, Maggie began working at the Von Maur department store in Moline in their shoe department. Upon graduating from college, Maggie became department manager for the Iowa City Von Maur store. She then worked at several other midwestern Von Maur stores earning acclaim for her sparkling personality and commitment to customer service.

However, her life tragically ended in December, 2007 with the mass shooting at a Omaha, Nebraska mall. Maggie had recently moved to Omaha to serve as Von Maur Store Manager when she was killed along with five other employees and two customers.

Her friends and family remember Maggie for her smile, laughter, and always concluding a conversation by saying the phrase "Good times" twice.

To celebrate the life well-lived of this vibrant young adult, friends organized a trivia challenge and auction night in the spring of 2008 to raise funds for this scholarship. A bracelet was also designed and sold with the words "Good Times" to remember the favorite phrase of Maggie Webb.

Bonds of friendship that began as little boys and girls growing up in Moline continue today with the Maggie Webb Memorial Scholarship. Her friends and family have committed themselves to the memory of Maggie Webb by establishing this scholarship that will help other Moline students reach for their dreams and meet their potential just as Maggie did in her too-short life here on Earth.
