Sara is kind and very thoughtful. She and her three children can be seen around the community giving back, supporting local events, and gathering families together on Sunday to be together at the Baptist Church. Sara is always looking for opportunities to be a strong steward for her community and a great example for her children, family, and friends.

Sara leads the Christmas Caroling on Main Street prior to the Holiday Light Parade. She contacts the Chamber to find ways her family can volunteer and give back throughout the year. The community of Condon, Oregon is so much stronger because of the dedication Sara and her family show. She is an inspiration.
