"Remember how truly blessed you are and everything you have. Give more than you receive. Do not lose yourself along the way and always strive for greatness."
These words written by Sarah Liamos during her 2014 Winter Break Alternative trip embodies the Saint Anselm College spirit of service to others. Prior to her untimely death last summer from heart disease, Sarah devoted countless volunteer hours toward helping others and inspiring them with hope and joy.
This legacy of compassion and service to others will live on through the Sarah M. Liamos Class of 2014 Endowed Scholarship recently established by her parents, Karen and Charles Liamos of Pleasanton, California. The fund will aid academically qualified Saint Anselm students who are involved in service trips.
Sarah was greatly inspired and motivated by her time spent on Alternative Break trips to Louisiana and New Jersey coordinated through the Office of Campus Ministry. The politics major downplayed her physical limitations and instead focused on her studies and volunteer work. During her time at Saint Anselm, she was a weekly volunteer at a Salvation Army after-school program for children. Sarah also volunteered many summers at a camp for children with heart disease.
Sarah's family looks forward to acknowledging like-minded Saint Anselm students on their journey in service to others through the Sarah M. Liamos Class of 2014 Endowed Scholarship.
