Sara F. Langer Award

Sarah F. Langer Award

Awarded to a rising Senior, majoring in geology, who exhibits eager curiosity in the field of geology, a dedication to excellence inside and outside the classroom, and a generosity of spirit in her day-to-day contributions to the College

"To all those who knew her, Sara was the picture of a well‑rounded student, dedicated and committed from the start to the many and varied as­pects of her life. For those who believed that college was merely a place to study and pursue the academic side of life, Sara demonstrated that ful­fillment was better found in broader horizons. The list of her interests and the joy which she found in all aspects of her life are ample proof of the truth and strength of her conviction‑‑a dedicated geologist, member of Sigma Xi, president of the geology club, member of her dorm's crew team, Vil Junior, active participant in dorm government, a counselor (not only to those younger than she but to her contemporaries as well), and good friend. I know I am only one of many who have benefited from Sara's companionship and guidance ‑ ­guidance that was generously given and gratefully received. And despite her full and often hectic schedule, Sara never lost her spontaneity‑‑she was always game for a 3 a.m. jaunt to the Cape for a bagel at sunrise." -Amelia C. Fawcett, President, Class of 1978
