SCA Statement on Sunday’s Shooting in Dayton, Ohio


Shooting left nine people dead, including a former SCA intern.

The entire SCA community is saddened by this tragedy and the heartbreaking loss of life. We grieve for the families and loved ones of those taken from us, and for all those impacted by this horrific act.

Megan Betts served as an SCA intern at the Smokejumper Visitor Center in Missoula, Montana, leading tours and educating visitors, earlier this summer. She reveled in the outdoors and looked forward to a career in earth sciences. SCA deeply regrets that her time on the planet she loved so much was so brief.
