I remember being in 3rd grade with Sarah (Sarah Jo as we called her back then).  She was extremely smart and always prepared.  She had the most precise handwriting.

I ran into her later when her son was on the same basketball team as mine.  She was obviously very connected to him.

I remember Sarah Jo fondly.  She was one of the accompanists for the chorus and ensemble.  So very talented, so bright, so kind and cheerful, and not to mention, cute as a button.  And not  at all stuck on herself.  She would even speak to a lowly nerd such as me!  Wish now I had gotten up the nerve to get to know her better, but you know how us nerds were.

I ran into her a few years after high school, maybe '72.  She was coming out of a secretarial school.  I was dumb-founded, remembering how intelligent she was.  She explained to me that she went to college (UNC?) and got her batchelor's in math, but when she went for job interviews, all the openings they had were for secretaries, and she didn't have the typing skills necessary.  So unfair. 

I hope she went on to have the rich and rewarding life that she so richly deserved.

Sarah lived down the stree from. I first recall meeting her in 1st grade when we road same bus to Francis Lacy.

She also was my first experience 'sleeping over at friend's house'. My Mom had to come get me about 8 o'clock because I was too homesick to stay!  I also remember Sarah's parents as warm and 'different'....different culture than I had known. We made up for my shyness over the years.
