Candidate for Secretary Elect

 Sarah Dowd

 

Statement of Candidacy


I am honored to be nominated to serve SASFAA as Secretary.  Since my first year in the financial aid profession, and my week at New Aid Officers’ Workshop as a novice, I have been supported, developed, educated, and sustained by the services and programs of the association.  SASFAA has always provided the very best in connecting each of us to the resources, and mentors needed to be successful aid administrators, and campus leaders.  Through the years, I have been fortunate to learn from the very best, and to advance through various duties within the association into leadership roles as New Aid Instructor, AdHoc Chair, Committee Chair, and elected office nominee.

My goal is to give back to the profession and the association through service as Secretary continuing opportunities for all of us to build the future, and assist each other in our professional growth.
