For more than 20 years Sarah Everett ’82 has been a part of the St. Anne’s-Belfield School’s alumni leadership, this year stepping into the role of Alumni Association Board president.
“As a third generation legacy, I have always felt a strong connection to the School, said Everett. “Two of my five children have graduated from the School, and my youngest is a junior. Service on the board is one way I am able to give back.”
Everett’s giving back began just after college graduation, in fact, with a $10 donation to the School that resulted in a thank you letter that made her feel as though she had made a real difference. Shortly after she became involved as a volunteer, and has enjoyed the ability to merge her own interests with serving the School.
“The possibilities are endless,” she said. “We can find a way for you to engage, just define your passions. My most consistent engagement is through I.M.P.A.C.T., a faith-based club for teens that I started with Mr. Dodd. For years I shared my passion for photography through slide shows, archives, and sports action endeavors. On Friday nights I am able to teacher students in the Ski Club at Wintergreen. I actually started the Ski Club in 1980!”
