The Pi chapter of Kappa Kappa Psi at Auburn University is proud to announce the Live. Laugh. Run. 5K and Fun Run. Proceeds from the event will be given to the Sarah Anderson Memorial Scholarship Fund.
In November 2009, The Auburn University Marching Band lost a band member in a tragic car accident. Sarah Anderson played piccolo and was a brother of Kappa Kappa Psi, Auburn’s National Honorary Band Service Fraternity. To honor Sarah’s life, a scholarship has been established in her name. The memorial scholarship will be given yearly in Sarah Anderson’s name to a member of the Auburn University Marching Band. The recipient will be someone who reflects the ideals and goals of Kappa Kappa Psi and who shares the positive attitude and love for life that Sarah had.
“Kappa Kappa Psi decided to establish a scholarship so Sarah’s name and memory could live on forever,”
said Katherine Buck, an Auburn sophomore majoring in communication and member of Kappa Kappa Psi.
