Catching up with Sara (Urban) Payne Class of 2008 recipient of the Babe Zaharias Award: Outstanding Female Athlete Jones/Beato Scholarship.
1) What are you doing professionally now?
I am at Westmont Junior High School as a 6/7 Literacy teacher. I worked in Cicero District 99 as a 6th grade teacher for the last 10 years. I made the switch to be closer to my home in Downers Grove.
2) What was your best memory from your experience at Lisle High School?
My best memory from my experience at Lisle High School was being able to play three sports, all four years of high school. The friendships and memories made from those teams are ones in which I will never forget.
3) Is there anything you want to say to the Lisle alumni who contributed to your scholarship?
To the Lisle alumni who contributed to the scholarship that I received, thank you so much for your support and your generosity. It is because of people like you making these contributions that make those next steps after high school possible and more attainable for students like me.
