BOISE -- A group of Eagle High students donated hundreds of books today to Sacred Heart Elementary School in memory of their classmate Shauna Hill.

Shauna was killed in a car accident in December, when she collided with another car at the intersection of Highway 16 and Floating Feather in Eagle.

Shauna's mom, Heidi, is a teacher at Sacred Heart. The group, called Serve Now Play Later, did a book drive and donated 600 books. Heidi said her daughter was a straight-A student, and loved learning, so this was a great way to help her legacy live on.

These young boys are just such a fine reflection of the type of friends that Shauna chose, Shauna had as friends at Eagle high school and the serve now play later is a pretty special thing because they targeted books because they knew how important Shauna's academics were to her. It was everything to her, said Heidi Hill.

Inside the cover of each book donated today, there's a sticker with a quote from Shauna's personal Journal:

Spend your time for what is meant for an earthly dwelling. Be peaceful, mindful, healthy, sharp, and keep yourself induced with knowledge. Never allow technology to undo a beautiful mind.

After today's dedication, everyone gathered to sing happy birthday and eat cake, as today would have been Shauna's 17th birthday.
