Sarah, please tell us where you grew up, where you went to school, what school activities you have and what family ties you have to Newcomerstown.

“I grew up in Moon Twp. near Pittsburgh, PA. In high school, I participated in clubs including the Key Club, the Hasty Pudding Society, and the German Club. I also performed in musicals every spring, either in the orchestra pit or in an ensemble, and was a member of the Marching & Symphonic Band for four years. During my senior year, I attended Saturday classes and earned my EMT B license for my final project. I had a great group of friends and loved high school.

I always knew I wanted to go to college, but I didn’t really know what I wanted to do for a living. After graduating from high school, I went to Allegheny College and it turned out to be a very good fit for me. It was a difficult school academically and it challenged me. My major was Psychology with a minor in German. Lifelong friendships were formed and I had the opportunity to study abroad twice, in the fall semester of my sophomore year in Germany and in the summer semester after my junior year in Austria. I enjoyed Greek life and rushed to Kappa Kappa Gamma and still visit and keep in touch with many of my sisters.
