2014-10 - Sarah Schumacher

Our October 2014 Metta Student recipient is Sarah Schumacher. Sarah is the current president of the EGHS Chapter of Best Buddies, an international organization that helps spread disability awareness through pairing those with and without Intellectual Developmental Disabilities (IDD) in one-to-one friendships.

In addition, Sarah is a member of Student Council and Real Girls Matter. Real Girls Matter works to spread the gender equality movement throughout the EG schools and beyond.

“It is important for me to give back because it makes me realize what I have and how fortunate I am,” says Schumacher. “I enjoy giving back to EGHS because it is truly a great school. So many kids go to schools that can't even afford basic necessities like heat, books, paper and all things we, myself included, take for granted.
