Versatile in her abilities yet consistent in her high level of effort, Sarah has made sportsmanship a priority in all areas of her life. A dual-sport athlete in swimming and track and field, Sarah earned a reputation for encouraging teammates and opponents alike to give their best effort and enjoy their experience. Known to help set up hurdles before track meets and clear all the starting blocks at swimming meets, Sarah made hugs and handshakes a postgame priority. While juggling two varsity sports, Sarah also found time for two majors, earning a 3.9 GPA in chemistry and Spanish. Consistently on the Dean’s List at the University of Wisconsin – Oshkosh, Sarah has won numerous academic scholarships, including the Ronald Reagan Future Leaders Scholarship. She has also engaged her fellow students beyond the classroom by contributing to the Biology Club and the Optimist Club, and by co-founding an online mentoring program linking students with alumni based on majors and career interests. A native of Oshkosh and a graduate of Oshkosh West High School, Sarah has given back to her community, participating in blood drives, Special Olympics, and local politics.
