Sarah Amend was often in our prayers. She was a strong young woman who battled Cystic Fibrosis, and recently endured a double lung transplant. Sadly, her new lungs were rejected by her body after much struggle, and she passed from this world, June 15, 2017.
The Sarah Amend Symphony Scholarship Fund has been set up by her family to allow Sarah’s inspirational qualities of friendship, personal integrity, service to others, academic excellence and intellectual pursuits through community and campus involvement and personal and career development, to become a legacy.
Our church will be taking up a special collection and making a donation to the fund. Our collection will be open until August 20. Checks can be made out to our church with a note that says “For Sarah”. Funds will then be distributed to the Sarah Amend Symphony Scholarship Fund through the UC Foundation. These funds, and all future additions to the Fund, which will be administered by the UC Foundation in accordance with their policies for gift funds, will be used for scholarships to be awarded annually.
