Tracey Marshall took a risk joining the volleyball team in high school. She knew nothing about the sport, yet she became an elite player in a short amount of time. Tracey would have wanted others to know her journey and the importance of grit and integrity.
She embraced learning and growing in a multitude of ways. As a true leader on the court or in the classroom, she shared her passion for the game and for education. Along the way, she built impactful relationships with her teammates, students and athletes. Tracey was known to help and inspire many, as a mentor or a friend.
In memory of Tracey, please make a donation to assist students and educators in District 99 through the District 99 Education Foundation. Donations will be used towards Special Education, students and families in need, professional development (students and staff), post-secondary student career support. Donate today.
Tracey Marshall was a 1996 graduate of South High School in Downers Grove, Illinois. She earned All Conference, All State, All American awards in volleyball.
