Congratulations and Thank You, Sarah Kostick!

Each year the CRCC selects one volunteer to be recognized as the United Way Spotlight Volunteer. This year, Sarah Kostick was chosen - and for good reason!

Sarah is a third year law student at Case Western Reserve School of Law, where she is focusing on criminal and international law. She spent the summer of 2009 in Arusha, Tanzania, clerking at the UN International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda. Throughout her three years at Case, she has been a member of Law Students for Reproductive Justice and the International Law Student Association.

In her spare time, Sarah enjoys yoga, horseback riding and pilates, attending films and concerts, cooking and running (she's even training for a 1/2 marathon that she'll run the day of her graduation!).

Somehow with all of this on her plate Sarah has found time through it all to stay involved with both the Hotline and F2F Programs. She was a clear choice for this honor and was rewarded with 3 wonderful dates to the United Way recognition luncheon and annual meeting this past Friday - her boyfriend, Sarah Bartholomew and me!

Sarah received recognition in the program, was acknowledged during the meeting and got a certificate to take home. She (and other volunteers) are also recognized in the UW e-newsletter.

Cleveland Rape Crisis Center Sarah Kostick, 2.5-year volunteer “Sarah has been an invaluable resource for those seeking the services of the Cleveland Rape Crisis Center, and she finds time in her busy schedule to address the needs of the community,” said Wendy Hanna, Director of Volunteers and 24-Hour Programs. “She’s a big-picture thinker with the motivation and follow-through needed to make changes for survivors of sexual assault.”

Congrats, Sarah! And THANK YOU!
