Sarah M. Liamos Memorial Scholarship Fund

Sarah lived a full life despite having Congenital Heart Disease, mostly because she refused to let heart disease define who she was. Sarah grew up as a Camp Taylor heart camper, attending camps for 9 years and giving back through volunteering both as a mentor to younger heart kids and as a counselor. Sarah earned a BS in Political Science and minor in Criminal Justice from St. Anselm College on May 17, 2014, a goal that was more important to her than many realized. This memorial scholarship recognizes Sarah’s college aspirations and her contributions to Camp Taylor, keeping her memory alive for years to come.
