Michael Goodgame — the 2011 Staples grad who was killed Friday, in an icy automobile accident in Minnesota — was many things.
He was a Carleton College junior, majoring in political science and interested in lowering the vicious tempers in Washington. He was a talented writer for the school newspaper (he’d done his senior internship at Staples with Write Yourself Free).
He was a swimmer, an Ultimate Frisbee player (on his way to a tournament at Stanford when he died), an avid traveler, and a compassionate, caring, fun-loving good friend.
Michael Goodgame was 20 years old. He had a whole life yet to live.
So sorry that we lost a really good member of our Human Group
RIP Michael. You appeared to be one of the really great ones.
All of us in the Carleton family send our condolences to Michael’s loved ones.
