There are some people who commit themselves to the places in which they believe, and they do so with energy and gusto. We're so fortunate that Sarah Greenwood Salmon ’97 has chosen SCH as that place, and she is committed to bettering and expanding this wonderful community.
Having returned to Chestnut Hill in 2016 with her family, she enrolled her oldest daughter in 1st grade at SCH and immediately jumped in to volunteer in her daughter’s class. During the next academic year, she served on the Parents Association executive board as a Lower School representative. In 2019, she joined the Blue Devils Club, which is the athletic fundraising committee. She has also volunteered as an alumnae class agent, serving as a liaison between her classmates and the alumni office helping to disseminate information on a regular basis regarding reunions and other Development Office happenings. Since 2020, she has been a member of the Springside Alumnae Association executive board and, for the past two years, Sarah has served as the alumni admission liaison. In this role, she helps to steward new families and reach out to potential families who might be a match for SCH.
Together with the Admissions Office, she recently crafted a letter to prospective alumni families inviting them to tour SCH. Fifty percent of families that received the personalized letter toured, and more than half of those families enrolled at SCH. This was in large part thanks to Sarah’s work with admissions. This year, she and other alumni volunteers wrote notes to newly-admitted students to include in the admissions acceptance boxes, and they even hand-delivered the boxes to accepted alumni families.
In addition to volunteering on the Alumnae Association Board, she also served as secretary for the Parents Association Executive Board. She was a sub-committee chair for the 2021 parent fundraiser and also volunteered on the fundraising committee this year as well.
