Sarah Graff


Oxford Area High School senior Sarah Graff, daughter of Chris and Jim Graff, is the school’s recipient of the 2014 Comcast Leaders and Achievers Scholarship.

The award, funded through The Comcast Foundation, recognizes high-school seniors from Comcast communities for their commitment to community service, academic achievement and demonstrated leadership. In recognition of her accomplishments, Sarah will receive a one-time grant of $1,000 from Comcast.

Sarah is a member of National Honor Society, captain of the high school’s first team in the Chester County Academic Competition and a member of the yearbook staff. She is a drum major in the marching band as well as band president, and a staff member of the morning news broadcast.

Sarah will serve as student director and senior stage manager for the musical production of "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat" to be presented at the high school in March. She has participated in the high school’s independent study program since her sophomore year and is working on projects in pre-calculus and library science. She recently earned AP Scholar designation, granted to students who achieve scores of 3 or higher on three or more AP Exams.

For three years, Sarah has been a member of the Girls’ Advisory Board of the Chester County Fund for Women and Girls, which is responsible for the allocation of $25,000 annually to non-profit programs that have a positive impact on low-income women and girls. Past funding recipients include the Chester County Food Band and The Garage in Kennett Square.

Sarah would like to study history in college and her choices include West Chester and Clemson universities and Elizabethtown College.
