Sarah Brady is a double major from Marcus, Iowa. Studying Agriculture Education and Elementary Education, Brady has plans to make an impact on young lives through a career in teaching.

Sarah was drawn to Panhandle State because it was an opportunity to be closer to her extended family and she hasn’t looked back since she arrived on campus. She is extremely active as a member of Student Oklahoma Education Association (SOEA), FFA, Alpha Zeta, and Student Senate and currently holds an office in each organization. Additionally, she serves as a Student Ambassador, campus photographer, and the chair of both the School Improvements Committee and Special Committee.

Sarah’s involvement has left a significant impact on campus during her time as a student. Her most recent contributions to campus revolve around special improvements. She chaired a group that was charged with finding a viable option for dorm renovations. The group had a mission to create a personal space students could call home while keeping the upgrades cost effective for the university. While those renovations are still in process, Sarah also helped secure the new Disc Golf course at the walking trail on campus, gathered funds for renovating the student dorm lounge, and redesigned the Holter Hall front plaza.

She said her favorite thing about school is “the sense of family and community. Every teacher is concerned for your well-being and care to know your background. They know your goals and are willing to do anything they can to help you succeed.”

“I have been given endless opportunities during my time at Panhandle. I have been able to take on more responsibility and leadership. Working with a variety of people and skills has done wonders in helping me prepare for the future.”

She is married to her high school sweetheart Ben Brady. Sarah enjoys spending time with family and friends. She also likes taking pictures and has been a campus photographer for over four years.

An extremely positive and professional individual, her work ethic is to be commended as she balances her classes, work responsibilities, and extra activities with ease and she can always be seen with a smile on her face. It seems there is no challenge to big or too small for her, as she seeks to always do her very best.
