Villa Duchesne and Oak Hill School senior Sarah Sutherlin was selected as one of Missouri's top High School Youth Volunteers in the 2013 Prudential Spirit of Community Awards. She is invited to Washington, D.C. in May to receive her award along with 100 other high school volunteers from around the country.
Sarah has personally raised more than $10,000 for the American Cancer Society after the disease claimed both of her grandmothers. Sarah says, "I joined the American Cancer Society's Relay for Life in the hope that others won't have to watch a loved one suffer from this awful disease."
Sarah has also qualified for the President's Volunteer Service Award, which recognizes Americans of all ages who have volunteered significant amounts of their time to serve their communities and their country.
