In the Hillsboro Optimist Club, Sarah Newton is working her way through the program. Sarah joined the Optimist Club October 17, 2012. She immediately became involved in the public relations and communications aspects of the club serving as their bulletin and blog editor.
On February 19, 2013, she completed her first speech requirements for the PGI program when she made a presentation to her club about "How Optimism Can Make a Better World."
According to Sarah, as optimists, we create a better world through our actions. Civic leaders need optimism so they may serve the needs of their communities. Teachers and medical professionals use optimism to take care of their students and patients. We each use optimism to care for our family and friends and the world around us. Yes, as Sarah says, "Optimism is an incredible trait."
