Sarah Darelle Anderson (1990-2009)

Tragedy struck the Auburn University Bands on November 10, 2009, when one of our own died in a traffic accident on Interstate 85.

Sarah AubieSarah was a 2008 graduate of Robertsdale High School where she was assistant drum major her junior year and was drum major her senior year. She was her high school's 2007 homecoming queen, a National Honor Society member, and received other awards and honors. She was an active member of Loxley First Baptist Church.  She went on several mission trips, including a trip to Haiti, and was also involved with drama and singing with the church.

Sarah entered Auburn University in the fall of 2008, where she immediately joined the Auburn University Marching Band, playing in the piccolo section for the 2008 and 2009 seasons. In addition, she was a beloved member of our Pi Chapter of Kappa Kappa Psi National Honorary Band Fraternity. She loved horses and planned to enter veterinary school upon graduation.

In her memory, the Pi Chapter of Kappa Kappa Psi has established the Sarah Anderson Memorial Scholarship. The scholarship will be given annually to a member of The Auburn University Bands. 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 Anderson had.
