Growing up, Sara was very active in Girl Scouts, earning her Silver Award and most of the Gold Award. She enjoyed Girls’ Softball and spending time with her many friends. In High School, she was especially proud of the years she spent in choir. She graduated from A&M Consolidated High School in 1988 and from the Blinn College LVN Program in 1992. She worked primarily in local nursing homes during her career.
