Heather Dawn Eckart was an outstanding young woman whose
untimely death in October, 1985, grieved members of her school,
community, state, and nation. She had been deliberately trained
as a leader by her own initiative, her family, her schools,
her church, the Indiana Association of Student Councils, and
the National Association of Student Councils and held key
leadership roles in many of these organizations.
