A Note From Christine Anderson

Please help us raise money for a scholarship to honor Sarah Dorer as she retires from the Bedford Public Schools this spring! Donations can be made here or mailed to CSF/Bedford Dollars for Scholars, P.O. Box 585, Bedford, MA 01730, and indicate in the memo line it's for "Sarah Dorer Scholarship." The scholarship will be awarded annually starting in 2020 to a graduating senior from Bedford High School or a Bedford/Hanscom resident graduating from another high school. Preference will be give to a student who plans to study math or education or who participated in the Tenacity Challenge. Sarah Dorer has been a pillar of the Bedford community and the Bedford schools for 23 years and has taught an entire generation of students to love not only math, but the process of learning, striving, and challenging yourself to think in new and unexpected ways. In addition to her work as a math enrichment teacher and math curriculum coordinator, Sarah is active in the District Equity Committee and also has been a regular volunteer at both the Middle School and High School Tenacity competitions for many years since they started. She has worked with teachers and with families in so many capacities throughout Bedford as a treasured teacher, colleague, and volunteer, including a founding member of the Bedford Family Connection and serves on the board of CSF/Bedford Dollars for Scholars. Her impact on the children of Bedford is truly immeasurable. We will miss her greatly as she transitions from full-time work to spend more time with her family, including new grandchildren!
