Celebrating the life of Anisa Scott



MADISON, Wis. — The Madison community is gathering Saturday to honor the life of 11-year-old Anisa Scott, the young girl who was killed in a shooting last week.

The community is invited to join Anisa’s family and friends at the Wisconsin State Capitol at 11 a.m. where community leaders, including Madison Mayor Satya Rhodes-Conway, will share remarks.

From there, the crowd will march down East Washington Avenue to Breese Stevens Field where Anisa’s funeral will take place. The procession will be led by Anisa’s uncle, a local motorcycle club, a red monster truck carrying Anisa’s casket, three family limousines and several monster trucks.

The plans for a celebration of life and Unity March in honor of Anisa were announced Aug. 15.

Since the 11-year-old was killed in a shooting last week, family and friends have remembered her as a sweet, smart girl with a passion for basketball and monster trucks.

Police have since arrested three teens in connection with her death.

Anisa’s death marks the 10th homicide in Madison this year.
