Sarah Short is excited to join the ServeOhio team as Volunteer Engagement Program Officer! Sarah just finished an AmeriCorps service year with Habitat for Humanity – MidOhio where she served as Volunteer Service Coordinator. In her role at Habitat, she oversaw volunteer engagement including communication with volunteers, tracking volunteer hours and engagement, registering individuals and groups, and planning and managing national days of service projects. During her service year, she also served on the AmeriCorps Member Ambassador Council where she helped with recruitment and improving the service experience for members. Sarah is a 2020 graduate of Otterbein University with a BS in Business Administration and Management and a BA in Theatre. At Otterbein, she was an active member of Epsilon Kappa Tau sorority, executive member of the Department of Theatre and Dance’s student government, and the recipient of the 2020 Gressman-Shultz Drama Award. She also served as Managing Director of the annual OtterDrag fundraiser which benefited Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS and the students of the Department of Theatre and Dance. In her free time, Sarah is a frequent visitor of the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium and the Columbus Museum of Art. She also volunteers with the ROY G BIV Gallery. Sarah is looking forward to learning more about and helping facilitate service and volunteerism in Ohio, especially through the National Days of Service Grants and the Get Connected platform.
