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.
