Sara Eagin, a 2004 graduate of Spring Lake High School, is this issue’s featured graduate in “Where Are They Now?” A consumate history buff dating well before her high school days, Sara went on to pursue her dreams in college and in life.

After high school, Sara attended Miami University in Ohio, where she majored in History and American Studies. After earning her Bachelor’s degree, Sara began work on her graduate degree at George Washington University in Washington, D.C. She earned a degree in museum studies, and today she is the Senior Curator at The History Factory in Washington, D.C.

Sara’s work is demanding but rewarding. “I research, curate and write exhibits for major corporations across the country and around the world. I’ve done everything from an exhibit of children’s books to plumbing, fast food sauce packages to finance and insurance… most recently a bilingual exhibit in the Middle East.”

As a Laker, Sara was active in NHS, Business Professionals of America, and she helped to co-found the Interact group, which is still very active today. Sara recalls fondly going to pep rallies and cheering for the football and basketball teams.

After college in Ohio, Sara moved to D.C. to attend George Washington, and she lives alone in the nation’s capitol. Sara has two younger siblings, Betsy and Chad, and her parents, Dave and Mary, still live in Spring Lake.

Sara gives much of the credit for her career to the teachers she had in Spring Lake. “Teachers in middle school recognized my interest in history and encouraged me in that direction… I never realized I could make it into a career.”

Asked what advice she would give to current Lakers, Sara said, “You’re never too cool to use an umbrella, the sooner you accept that, the better off you’ll be. Make the most of high school… but remember that it ends, and you’ll move on to even bigger and better things!”

Sara reflects on her time in Spring Lake with a bit of nostalgia, adding, “I realize now just how amazing it was to grow up in Spring Lake… so appreciate ate what you have!”
