The Sarah DeMille Scholarship Award was set up in remembrance of
Sarah Ashley DeMille, SMCHS Class 2005 Lady Runner. Sarah was killed in an automobile accident at Northern Arizona University. Sarah volunteered to accompany a friend who was driving a fellow student at NAU home for the weekend so the driver would not have to make the long trip on mountain roads back to NAU alone. The student driving the car lost control while trying to avoid hitting a deer that ran across the road.
The idea for the scholarship and the initial donation to the fund was made possible by Applied Medical. Sarah had worked at Applied Medical for two summers as an intern. Sarah was a true Lady Runner. She loved to run. She loved the team and she loved her ability to make each member believe it was all about personal best. The recipient of the scholarship award is chosen based on the values and attributes of the ideal SMCHS Lady Runner, and the cross country coaches make their selection based on these criteria.
