In Memory of Sarah Chapman

Sarah Chapman, an outstanding student and person, died on Monday, September 15, 2008. Sarah went to Germany this May as part of the course “Munich, Nuremberg, and Berlin: Legacies of the Third Reich.” The picture above is Sarah in Munich at Odeonsplatz.

We were so impressed by Sarah. She was intelligent and adventurous, and her enthusiasm was infectious. She was not deterred by anything or anyone. She wanted to see Neuschwanstein, and she did. She wanted to “Facebook friend” one of the tour guides in Nuremberg, and she did. She wanted to see the ballet in Berlin, and she did. When we saw her the next morning, she told us: “Guess what I did last night?! I went to the ballet! It was amazing!”

We thank Sarah for these wonderful memories.

Our thoughts are with her family and friends.
