Each year, one club sports team is awarded the Sandra Johnson Memorial Award.
Sandra (Sandy) Johnson was a member of the DU club women's lacrosse team, who on April 10, 1989, died in an automobile accident on the way home from a club game in California.
To celebrate her life, club sports created an award in her honor and memory. The Sandra Johnson Memorial Award is presented to the club sports team that best represents student leadership, motivation and enthusiasm.
From 1996 – 2003, the award was presented to an individual club sports member who best exemplified these characteristics.
This award carries an extra sense of respect and pride as it honors our past and celebrates our future.
Sandra Johnson Memorial Award nominees are selected and voted on by the club sports advisory board. The award is presented each spring at the student programs end-of-year banquet.
