We're delighted to announce that Sarah Rosenthal has joined the Brewton Foundation's Board of Directors.
Sarah expects to earn a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration from the University of Oregon’s Lundquist College of Business in June 2023. She received a Summit Academic Scholarship for all of her undergraduate academic years and plans to earn a Master of Science of Financial Analysis before building her career in financial management.
While in high school, Sarah maintained a 4.0 GPA and was editor-in-chief of the school newspaper as a senior, freshman representative in Student Government, and president of the Drama Club for three years. As technical manager of the theatre department, she created and ran sound, lighting, and venue support for 25 events and three theater productions per academic year.
Combining business sense and passion for the arts, Sarah researched a way to save her high school’s theater department when she was a sophomore. The school board announced that it would close the department and remove the position of drama teacher on April 30; by May 3 Sarah had gathered budget information and county property tax records in time to present a defense at the Board of Education’s public meeting. The theater program and teacher’s position were reinstated.
In addition to her academic achievements, Sarah made ongoing sacrifices to help others during the first two years of the pandemic. She is an enthusiastic reader and enjoys cooking, hiking, and camping. Sarah’s character, work ethic, and sense of humor make her an ideal member of our board of directors, and we thank her for joining us.
