The 2010 Workum Fund Summer Interns


Sara Coyle graduated from Mason High School in 2009. Throughout high school she played tennis for the school team, was copy editor for the yearbook, mentored younger students through the Senior Siblings program, and was actively involved in National Honor Society. Community service is an important part of Sara’s life and during her senior year, she was given the opportunity to organize and manage a school team to participate in the Leukemia and Lymphoma “Light the Night” walk, a cause that is very special to Sara because her younger sister is a Lymphoma survivor. Sara has also participated in other community service opportunities through her temple youth group such as organizing the annual food drive and cooking and serving food at the Cincinnati soup kitchen as well as at the Ronald McDonald house. Sara is currently enrolled as a freshman at Miami University where she is studying as a business major. She recently became a member of the Kappa Delta sorority and is also involved in her dorm’s community council where she plans and implements social activities for the other residents. Sara is really looking forward to beginning her internship with the Cedar Village Community as a 2010 summer workum intern.
