Carson Scott Cato, 18, passed away July 21, 2017. Born in Little Rock on July 21, 1999, he was an excellent student and athlete who excelled in soccer and cross-country and who loved mathematics. Carson enjoyed playing his euphonium (baritone) in the marching band. He attended Bryant Public Schools, and graduated from the Arkansas School for Mathematics, Sciences and the Arts in Hot Springs. He was well-known for his unique sense of humor and his infectious smile.
