Advising & Recruiting Specialist
Since coming to the valley as a youth in 2003, Sara Carroll has been an active member in the community: performing with community theater, serving on her church worship team, and singing at local functions. In 2007, Sara began her journey at Central Washington University with running start, a program for high school students to take college courses on campus. She then auditioned as a vocalist into the music program, and continued at CWU as a music major. As a student, she was a very active member of the Central Music community, serving as an officer in multiple student clubs, competing in annual singing competitions, performing in various ensembles including the Chamber Choir and Opera Ensemble, assisting with department festivals, as well as working in the music office as a student assistant. Sara graduated with a degree in “Music Education: Choral & General Specialization” in December 2012. Since graduation, she served as a substitute teacher in the Ellensburg school district and many neighboring school districts, teaching subjects including band, orchestra, choir, elementary music, and even math, science, PE, social studies, and special education. Her desire to serve students of all ages is apparent in her return to Central as an advisor and recruiter. Sara has come to the Central Music program with knowledge of our many incredible programs, energy for its talented students, and vigor for recruiting the finest young musicians around the state and beyond. Sara loves Central Music and is more than excited to be back “home” as a part of the CWU Music Department faculty and staff team!
