What it means to “Live Like Sancy”:

Learn more about Sancy Shaw here and on the #LiveLikeSancy Facebook page.

In the peaceful little towns of Steamboat Springs and Clark Colorado, lived a dynamic woman named Sancy Jo Shaw. As a wife and mother, Sancy lived life to the fullest, with her husband Brett and four children, Wyatt, Mason, Jaxon and beautiful little girl, Charlee. Sancy’s Christian faith was a cornerstone of her life and she was a devoted follower of Jesus. Sancy wore many hats, as an avid runner, fly fisher, skier, snowboarder, soccer player, and lover of all things outdoors. She really found her calling as a Science and English Language Arts teacher at North Routt Community Charter School. Sancy had a profound impact on those she came in contact with, whether you knew her as a childhood friend, or only knew her for a day, your life was forever changed. Tragically on Christmas Eve 2018, Sancy and Charlee were hit by a drunk driver on Interstate 70 outside of Denver. Charlee was airlifted to Children’s Hospital Colorado, and Sancy didn’t make it. The Live Like Sancy – the Sancy Shaw Scholarship has been established to continue the positive impact Sancy had on those she came in contact with.
