Meet Sarah '20

This Angel has been investing her time serving others since she became a Girl Scout. A member since the age of six, Sarah has already earned her Bronze Award and Silver Award. Just before her senior year, she traveled to Morocco with Operation Smile, an organization that provides no-cost corrective surgeries to patients with cleft lip or cleft palate. She trained for her mission in Virginia Beach, where she learned how to provide the Op Smile patients’ families with critical health care information. During Sarah’s sophomore year, she attended Op Smile’s International Student Leadership Program. The following summer, she returned as an assistant team leader. Sarah is active with Op Smile at AHA, and currently serves as president of the executive board. Sarah also carves out time to serve as president of Outreach, a school-based service organization; Habitat for Humanity; and Girl Rising, through which she attended the 2019 International Day of the Girl at the United Nations.

This active young woman served on the Junior Retreat Committee and the Big Sister/Little Sister Committee. Always willing to lend a hand, Sarah volunteers at her town’s food bank, at her church, and with Solace House, an organization that provides support for individuals who experience depression and anxiety. She has organized fundraisers for suicide prevention, and assembled her own Relay for Life team to benefit the American Cancer Society’s research efforts. Through the Angels Advantage Program, Sarah has been assisting an AHA alumna who works with children with disabilities. Sarah’s friends nominated her for AHA’s Sister Catherine Green Kindness Award, a tangible reminder of her many inspirational acts of kindness. In addition to her extraordinary community outreach, Sarah has also contributed her athletic talents to the AHA Varsity Lacrosse Team. She received the 2019 Boston University Wheelock College of Education and Human Development High School Junior Book Award.
