Derek Alexander Allen
Jun. 28, 1988 – Oct. 7, 2010


Derek died as a result of a fatal accident in San Francisco, October 7, 2010. His kind heart and creative spirit touched many lives. He graduated in 2006 from the Visual Arts Academy at Amador Valley High School.

To honor Derek's life and passion for the arts, the Derek A. Allen Memorial Fund was created to support AVHS Visual Arts Program, especially ceramics. First year donations brought in $3180... - which was used to purchase a display case to celebrate and feature the Student of the Month in Ceramics. A selection of Derek's work will be on display in the case as well.

A BIG thanks to all who contributed to the Fund last year!

GOAL for this year is $6000 to purchase a kiln for the Visual Arts Academy.

Donations may be made to AVHS Attn: Derek Allen's Memorial Fund.
[tax deductible receipts will be provided]

COME celebrate the passion for the visual arts with us!!
