There are countless news articles describing how amazing a person Roslyn Schulte was. Just the sheer number of hits you will get if you search for "Roslyn Schulte" on google is a testament to how amazing she was, and how many lives she touched. Those articles will tell you that Roz was an all-american lacrosse player (and team captain at JBS and the academy). They will tell you that Roz was an exceptional student, a born leader, and a respected officer here in the states and abroad.

The articles will tell you she was on duty in Afghanistan teaching Afghan forces how to handle military intelligence; that she worked 14 hour days yet still somehow found time to dedicate herself to organizing a charity for Afghan refugees; they will tell you that she did this at the shockingly young age of 25.

That is why it is such a shame that those same articles also detail how Roz was lost forever when her vehicle struck a roadside bomb outside of Kabul, Afghanistan; that she was buried on Memorial Day in St. Louis.

But there are a few details those articles can't provide you; our memories of Roz. * We remember she looked beautiful in a mouthguard or an evening gown. * We remember Roz was so strong she could be intimidating, yet so personable that you were immediately put at ease. * We remember Roz loved movies, and Starfox, and anything her dad pulled off a grill. * We remember that when Roz spoke, you listened. And if you didn't, your arm might be sore soon. * And we remember that Roz was our friend. One of us. And if Roz could be taken from this earth, then so could we. So we had better make every day worth while.

So we are running these races for her. So that we might remember Roz, and so that we can live our lives to the fullest that we can, knowing that hers ended far too soon.

Memorial Funds:

The Roz Schulte Spirit Fund - John Burroughs School

John Burroughs School has created an endowed fund to remember and honor 1st Lt. Roslyn Schulte '02. This permanent fund will support Burroughs students and their activities in perpetuity.

The goal of the Schulte Fund is to recognize the spirit, camaraderie, teamwork and leadership qualities that Roz was known for wherever she went -- at Burroughs, at the Air Force Academy, on the playing fields, in her friendships, and during her service to her country.

The Schulte Fund will support the activities of Blue & Gold Spirit Week at John Burroughs School. Each year, proceeds from the fund will be used by the school to support spirit week events, activities, and purchases. From pep rallies to bonfires, posters to t-shirts, pom-poms to face paint, the Schulte Fund will make it possible for all Burroughs students to participate in the fun and whimsy of Blue & Gold Spirit Week.

United States Air Force Academy Awards

The 1st Lt. Roslyn Littmann Schulte '06 Memorial Fund for Character and Leadership Excellence has been established to recognize graduating cadets exhibiting outstanding character and leadership skills to honor the spirit of service exemplified by Roz. This award will be presented annually during Graduation week at the Air Force Academy.

In addition, an annual award will be presented to a member of the USAFA Women's Lacrosse team who exhibits outstanding leadership skills and character.
