Why I Give

Sarah Blane '09

B.A. Dance

Sarah earned her B.A. in dance with minors in psychology and Chinese (with a special interest in Chinese music and clothing), and is currently pursuing a Master of Arts in Teaching (curriculum and instruction) at Randolph. As a student teacher at New Vistas School, a private, non-profit day school in Lynchburg that offers individualized instructional programs for students with learning and attention difficulties, Sarah integrates elements of dance and movement into her work with autistic children.

While at Randolph-Macon Woman’s College and Randolph College, Sarah participated in Club Asia, the Pan World Club, and served as an orientation leader to international students. In fact, the interaction with those students and the diversity on campus helped to form her global perspective. She prides herself on her ability to look back into history and forward into the College’s future.

As a new donor to the College, Sarah has a unique perspective on the importance of giving that she shares with other alumnae in her role as a phonathon caller for the Annual Fund.

“By contributing to the College, and beginning a tradition of giving, I am connecting to the alumnae of the past and connecting to the students of the future who will have a similar educational experience,” says Sarah, who has a keen interest in educational law and is considering law school. “By giving, part of me will always be here.”
