Meagan Michelle Rough, 19, was the determined, small town girl who went out of her way to include everyone. She was a talented athlete with a strong faith, and a second year Pre-Med student at Texas Tech University. Meagan coached, tutored and mentored little admirers, and dedicated a great amount of her time to youth and faith based organizations. She dreamed of one day having a large wedding, a large family and a large list of adventurous plans for life. In a split second it all came to an end....
The Meagan Rough Memorial Foundation serves to honor the memory of “May”, after tragically losing her life to the recklessness of a drunk driver who collided with the back of her car at a speed of over 100 mph in a residential neighborhood. Miraculously, her best friend, roommate and driver, Kaitlyn, survived to a life that was traumatically and permanently changed....
The 19 year old driver who caused this preventable tragedy now sits out a 15 year sentence in a Texas penitentiary for taking her life.
Meagan's spirit of giving continues to live on through multiple transplant recipients who received her organs after a non-survivable Traumatic Brain Injury. The foundation was established to fund scholarships, host awareness events, provide outreach support and create prevention programs for students and families surrounding the dangers of the act of driving under the influence of drugs and alcohol.
The Meagan Rough Memorial Foundation gets involved with promoting other charities and fundraising events within the community. Watch for great products and causes to get involved in as this new site develops!
