Meet a Cannon Lifer (and the Class Valedictorian!): Sarah, Class of 2020

The experience our Lifers have at Cannon is truly special - they spend fourteen years (from JrK - grade 12) in our hallowed hallways! We’re spotlighting several, and today it's Sarah's turn.

Do you have a memory from JrK that you hold dear?
I will never forget my first day of JrK when one girl came running up to me and gave me a huge hug. I had never seen her, met her, known her, but she was so full of love. That’s when my parents and I knew that I would be just fine and that Cannon and the people here would take care of me.

Is there a Cannon School event or tradition that you look back on fondly? Why?
I will always look back particularly fondly on Father-Daughter Dances. The day would be spent with my mom and the evening with my dad, and it was a really special time for me to be able to spend with my parents to tell them how thankful I am for them.

How would you describe your Cannon School experience in three words?
My experience at Cannon has been engaging, meaningful, and fulfilling.

What is the most important lesson you learned during your time at Cannon?
Cannon has taught me to face every challenge with enthusiasm and determination and to put my whole heart into what I do. The teachers model this everyday, and their dedication to their work is infectious. They lead by example to demonstrate what it means to fully commit yourself to everything you do.

What are your plans post-graduation ?
I will be attending Princeton University, and I plan to major in physics, minor in biophysics, and follow the pre-med track!
