Senior Sarah Boxer ’18 reflects, “I am most proud of the relationships I have built with my peers, teachers, administrators, etc. over my five years at Lausanne. Incredible teachers have guided me throughout my academic and extracurricular experiences as well as pushing me towards learning something every day about the subjects I am passionate about.”
If there is one student that will be a future Senator or work in the White House, Sarah Boxer should be the first name that pops into your head. If anyone knows Sarah, they know she loves political science and studying different nations and cultures. With these interests, Sarah knew that Lausanne was the right school for her.
“Lausanne’s vibrant, diverse, and driven community appealed to me. The strong academics and support system also drew me in. I plan to leave The Lynx Link newspaper at Lausanne for students to continue writing about their passions and interests on and off campus. I also hope that my passions for International Affairs and government/leadership was passed on to underclassmen through Model UN.”
Some of Boxer’s accomplishments here at Lausanne are membership in the National Honor Society, Cum Laude Society, National Science Honor Society, Sigma Society, National Quill and Scroll Society, National Spanish Honor Society, Rho Kappa Society, National Art Honor Society and Senior Class Vice-President. In addition, Sarah was selected to be assistant head of the Atelier art program. She also received the honor of attending Tennessee Governor’s School for International Studies last summer. It is without a doubt that Sarah’s accomplishments reflect how hard-working and passionate she is as a student.
“Lausanne has exposed me to countless beliefs, cultures, and values. It has challenged me and pushed me to a better version of myself inside and outside the classroom. The leadership and personal skills acquired from my time at Lausanne will help me not only in college but for the rest of my life.”
Sarah will be attending The George Washington University in D.C. this coming fall for their International Affairs program. When Boxer shared this exciting news with friends and teachers, I don’t think many were surprised that she will be attending school in D.C. Sarah has always been oriented towards the humanities, which is reflected in her class schedule, studying History, Economics, English, Political Science and Government. Sarah is an active member of Lausanne’s Model United Nations chapter, a published writer in Lausanne’s literary magazine—Prism, and the Editor of the student newspaper—the Lynx Link.
We cannot wait to see you take D.C. by storm next year, Sarah. Your lynx family is proud of you!
