Sarah Villar Memorial Scholarship and Grant Fund
Sarah Villar was an exceptional female scholar-athlete who attended Gilroy High School and graduated in 2006. After High School, College, and Graduate School, Sarah pursued a career as a Pediatric Physical Therapist working with children and families in our local community. On June 20th, 2021, Sarah tragically lost her life far too soon. Sarah leaves behind a legacy of leadership, determination, and a love for helping the families of children who are developmentally delayed. This Memorial Scholarship and Grant fund is being established to honor her memory and help local college-bound female scholar-athletes and local families with special needs children. Each year a local college-bound female athlete will be selected to receive a $1,000 scholarship, and a grant of $1,000 will be given to a non-profit agency that helps local special needs children.
