Sarabeth Hammond Scholarship Fund

Sarabeth would have been on a panel like this.
I have had several requests from those wishing to contribute to the new Sarabeth Hammond Memorial Scholarship fund, which is being established by the Roanoke Regional Writers Conference.

Sarabeth died Wednesday evening in an accident on Bent Mountain when her car went off the mountain. She was found today by Roanoke County and state police officers.

The scholarship has been given for the past eight years to a communications major in the Horizon program at Hollins, the program for non-traditional students who are returning to school. Sarabeth was to have been a member of a panel discussion on blogging in the Jan. 27-28 conference at Hollins, the youngest teacher in the conference's history. She was a superb blogger.

Those wishing to contribute may send checks to the directly to me and with the notation "Sarabeth Hammond Scholarship." The Writers Conference is not able to handle those checks directly, so it will be up to me to make certain the checks go into the scholarship fund. My address is 2508 Edinburgh Drive, Roanoke VA, 24012.
