Sandy West Memorial Drummer Scholarship Fund
Financial aid assistance for drummers in memory of the Runaways drummer, Sandy West
Sandy got her first drum set as a gift from our grandfather when she was 9 years old. From the very first minute she touched them, she had a passion for playing the drums. Her childhood dream was to play drums in a rock ’n’ roll band. She started playing in neighborhood bands for junior high parties, and when she was 15, she met Joan Jett and formed the Runaways. Sandy always felt a bit out of sync at school due to some early childhood illnesses and learning disabilities. She always excelled at athletics and that ability carried over in developing her enormous talent and also in her style of playing the drums.
In the year before Sandy died of cancer at age 47, she was starting to make plans to do motivational speaking to young people, incorporating her life experiences and music. My parents, two older sisters, and I felt we wanted to carry on her dream by helping girls learn to play drums and feel good about themselves in the process. We are committed to contributing the royalties Sandy earns each year from the Runaways. We hope that others will be inspired to do the same. Rock ON!
