About Lindsay Bennett:
Born and raised in Henderson, Nevada, Lindsay was educated at a young age about accountability and responsibility through her participation in church and school programs, organized youth sports and years of dance instruction. Lindsay found happiness in all things big and small including: banana pancakes for breakfast; kisses on the forehead; acquiring her drivers license; car rides with her brother Andrew; leading her high school dance team to their first national title; voting in her first presidential election; securing a spot on a collegiate athletic team. An honors graduate from Coronado High School (class of 2008), she was looking forward to earning a degree in architectural design. Lindsay cherished the time she spent with family and friends, and believed in the importance of contributing to her community. This beautiful young woman was taken from us too soon, but her integrity and her love for life has inspired many.
Lindsay was a former architectural student, UNLV Rebel Girl dancer, and inspiration to all those lucky enough to have met her. She died three days before her nineteenth birthday from fatal injuries sustained as the victim of a tragic head-on crash caused by a drunk driver. She was coming home that evening from a practice at UNLV.
