What is your full name? Sara Elizabeth Hammerle

What are your future plans? What are you majoring in, if you are planning on attending a post-secondary school? I’m planning on attending DePauw University and majoring in Psychology (don’t know what my minor will be yet). After DePauw I’m going to get my masters in Social Work

What has made this year your best year? The experiences I’ve had this year, whether that was trips or college admittance days, they all made senior year a blast.

If you could give any advice to the underclassmen, what would you say? Keep an Excel sheet of all the things you do during high school, it’ll really help you out in the long run! Keep track of volunteer hours AND DATES because they will be needed when filling out scholarships.

Who has been your biggest influence at the school and why? (teacher, administrator, staff member) My biggest influence would probably be Ms. Helkey because she is literally the bomb.com! I worked in guidance with her and she was always a positive role model, feeding us snacks and checking in on us every day.

What class has been the most beneficial for you? Why? The most beneficial class that I’ve taken would probably be all my band classes. The band isn’t really like a class to me, it’s a brain break. I’m able to just be myself while helping others grow as musicians.

What is something interesting about you that most people wouldn’t know about you? I really want to learn how to play the banjo! I own one and play a few licks but nothing crazy. I’m hoping to learn in college.

Where do you see yourself in 10 years? In 10 years I hope to have my masters in social work and will have a job being a therapist for a great small company.

Are you planning on playing sports in college? If so what sport and where? I might be playing college soccer, but I’m not totally sure about it yet.
