Only a few years after graduating herself, Sarah was tapped to be the graduation speaker for the Iowa private college ~ who in turn presented her with an Honorary Doctorate of Humane Letters. She's now the HONORARY Dr. Kay.
The founder of Project VOICE is also an advocate for listening. While we often settle for looking at people because it's easier, Sarah reminds us that listening is more rewarding. In a commencement address at Grinnell, she had this message for graduates ~ "Don’t be tricked into thinking that certain people deserve less of your listening."
