Millie Taylor-Noonan was killed by a car outside Sir William Robertson Academy. Her family remembered her as a "happy, kind, caring and beautiful" young lady.
Millie, 18, from Sudbrook, was immediately taken to the Queen's Medical Centre at Nottingham after the crash with a black Mercedes recently. Tragically, the police have confirmed that she has died.
In a statement, the family of Millie expressed their heartbreak. But according to them, they had taken solace that the young woman had her organs given to help other people.
"Millie was a happy, kind, caring and beautiful young lady," her family said. "Millie was really passionate about the environment. For her 18th birthday she did not want presents but asked for people to donate to the Clean Oceans campaign."

The teen was also a member of the Centre for Alternative Technology, in Wales, and finished the Walk For Wildlife, with Chris Packham, they explained.
Millie's family added: "Millie had also made the choice that at the end of her life her organs should be donated, to help others.
"She was fantastic at school: all her teachers loved her and she worked hard. She was going to go to university and study the subjects that she was passionate about. She was loved by everyone, and was beautiful inside and out."
“We will miss you Millie – your family and your loving boyfriend," they concluded.
Millie's family have requested for privacy as of now.
Police said they would now like to talk to anyone who witnessed the crash.
"We would like to hear from anyone who was in the area of the school on the A607 and either saw the collision or saw the pedestrian or the black Mercedes before the collision to contact us via 101."
"In particular, we would like to speak to the driver of a white car which was following the black Mercedes C Class at the time of the collision."
The day before Millie's accident, a student from St George's Academy, Eliza Bill, 16, passed away following the collision with a lorry on the A15 at Osbournby.
