Title: Secretary to the Director
AA, Psychology, Parkland College
Parkland’s “beautiful campus and friendly environment” are what pleases Tolono native Sarah Whittington most about the college, where she’s worked since 2007. Sarah enjoys creating beautiful objects as well, using her crafts and baking skills. In fact, Sarah was key in organizing Parkland’s first Cupcake-A-Book fundraising contest during National Library Week in spring 2009: Contestants created cupcake decorations that correlated with their favorite books. Proceeds for the event benefited the Garden Hills Homework Club.
It’s probably no surprise that Sarah is inspired by the talents of Martha Stewart and enjoys hanging out at Ten Thousand Villages in downtown Champaign (“such pretty and unique things!”). You mind find her enjoying the beauty of Disney World, a favorite vacation spot, or lounging on “any beach.”
“Be as kind to yourself as you are to others” is an ideal she strives to live by...a beautiful one, at that.
