Maggie Campbell Memorial

 

A word from Maggie's parents:
We would like to thank the Elite Goalkeeping Academy from the bottom of our hearts
for developing these camp scholarships in the memory of our daughter, Maggie Campbell.
This means so much to us and we are honored to say that EGA played such a wonderful role
in developing Maggie's keeper skills.
Maggie loved the game of soccer and was an avid goalkeeper. Being a goalie was her passion.
She thrived on improving her game and attended two soccer camps each summer, including
Elite Goalkeeping Academy. She always felt challenged at the EGA and always looked forward
to their camp each year.
Maggie was also an 8th grade honor roll student and had many friends. But Maggie suffered
from low self esteem, like many girls her age. She was very self conscious and sensitive about
the size of her body and began to listen to some repeated negative remarks made to her over
several years by a small group of girls. The verbal bullying obviously made Maggie feel very
confused, doubting her self worth. She apparently felt very depressed and hopeless when she
took her life on May 13, 2009. Maggie was only 14 and a half years old. Words cannot express
the depth of pain and despair that we have felt since losing our beautiful and precious
Daughter.
Our messaage to any adolescent - soccer player or not - is to always talk to an adult if you are
experiencing any type of negative situations at school like Maggie did. Don't keep it to youself
and try to deal with it alone. We were unaware of Maggie's situation until after her death.
If we had known, we would have done anything in the world to help our daughter. Feelings of
depression, anxiety, confusion and any negative thoughts should be shared and talked about
with your parents or any adult you trust. Life is a wonderful gift from God who created 
you and loves you very much. And, I know that if Maggie were here today, she would agree that
talking to someone and getting help is so very important.
Once again, EGA will honor Maggie with her number on the camper t-shirt.
Sincerely,
Andy and Sandra Campbell
