On June 12th, 2012, Marah Williams, a graduate of Middle College High School, died at age 19 after a long struggle with chemical dependency and depression. To honor her memory, her parents, Penny LeGate and Mike Williams, and sister Molly established The Marah Project to help others achieve their life goals.
