Farewell and Best Wishes

Sarah Marshall will be leaving the College at the end of this semester, and we’d like to take a moment to express gratitude for her contributions to the CCE and to wish her the best of luck moving forward.

Sarah joined the CCE in the fall of 2012 after making a cross-country move from Ohio, where she taught English and reading for four years at a junior high school.  Hired as the Youth & Education Program Coordinator, Sarah brought a wealth of knowledge around working with K-12 youth, gained from her work experience and BS in Education.

As Youth and Education Program Coordinator, Sarah oversaw student organizations and programs that partnered with local K-12 schools toward the end of supporting the personal and academic development of youth.  In this capacity, Sarah strengthened the College’s relationship with local schools – particularly District 11 – and critically contributed to the maintenance and success of numerous ongoing partnerships.  Additionally, Sarah strengthened and expanded our Public Achievement program, working with multiple school partners to educate and empower youth to be active citizens in their community. Sarah also led the way for the College’s efforts to establish clear guidelines and expectations for college students on how to best work with youth populations, increasing the capacity of the College and the CCE to ensure that CC students are well-equipped to engage with minors in ways that foster and protect their safety (physical and emotional).

Most recently, Sarah built on these years of experience in a new position at the CCE as the Civic Leadership Program Coordinator.  In this position, Sarah advised all community-engaged student-led initiatives at CC.  She worked actively to develop leadership opportunities for CC students, and has forged supportive relationships with student leaders – serving as an invaluable resource for more than 20 student groups on campus.

After December 15th, Sarah will pursue new opportunities that afford her the chance to grow personally and professionally.  While she will be leaving CC, Sarah will continue to grow as a professional in higher education. She will continue a MA program at UCCS in Leadership with a concentration in Student Affairs in Higher Education, and is expected to complete the degree in 2019.

The CCE is deeply grateful to Sarah for her 5 years of service.  Please join us in wishing her all the best of in every future endeavor!
