SarahCombsSarah Combs from Roscoe Illinois is the final Rock Solid Regent for the spring 2016 semester. Sarah is a senior early childhood education major and was nominated by Elisa Bott, Assistant Professor of Education. Professor Bott shared that, “Sarah is an excellent student, team player, and natural leader”. She recently coordinated the Week of the Young Child events on the RU campus and in the community at the Annual Early Childhood Family Fun Fair at Heartland Church. The community event she helped organize and attended had over 500 families participating in hands on science and math activities.

Additionally, Sarah organized and motivated a team of early childhood education students to showcase their skills and profession on campus through a quiz recently featured on the portal and a bulletin board display in the Colman Library. Sarah stays very busy with her course work and family responsibilities. She does not consider herself a traditional student due to her laser focus on her family, particularly raising her three year old child.

Sarah enjoys studying at RU because the location allows her to continue her education while raising a family with her husband. After graduation from RU she looks forward to obtaining a teaching position in preschool or the primary grades. Congratulations, Sarah!
